End caps on the intercooler.  If you see oil weeping down from where the cap
seam is, you've prolly got a blown intercooler.  Best way to see is to
remove the front grill.

When I bought my sedan, the Michelin Man hose was loose at one end.
Tightening the clamp brought it from 1.2  to 1.3 at full boost.
