you would get a loud ticking noise if you can get a long peice of pipe and put one end to your ear and the other end put it all around the manifold and it will get quite loud when you have found the leak.

i think i have the same prob and i would say erratic idle as on mine and increased fuel consumption?
at least this is what mine does and and i notice that there is some black carbon someplace on the gasket which is probably leading to leak.
i am sure that the O2 is reading wrong with the leak. just want to make sure is just that as i have to remove the radiator to do it in my car as it is very close to the turbo due to the aircon condenser.

dave,

great idea with the pipe. i was just searching on the bay for a vacuum leak detector.
will do the pipe trick tomorrow morning as it is almost 3:00am here now :(
