I was going to put this in the last post but thought you had read the way I tested mine years ago.

Put a pint size paint can in the hose off the air filter box, tighten the clamp, pull the small hose off the blow of valve, give it a short blast of air, put your thumb over the hose, listen for leaks.

That's how I found the oem tmic leaking.

A bottle or any size can that fit's in the hose would work as a plug. You must have something over there that will plug the hose.
