Vacuum leak diag help!

I think my car has a vaccum leak or at least 1 which i already know of... I grabbed a hose when i was trying to diag them and it was so dried out it completly snapped lol so have a few questions..
First how would i diag a boost leak or track em down..
Second what are the main areas to look around .
And third where would i go to by new lines?? The line that runs from my wastegate to right under the intercooler into some pipe theres a T off it that runs to under a black cover behind the intake is the one that completly broke so i need to get that but i would like to replace all the lines in that area just to prevent future problems. Could i just buy some sort of rubber hose that size in a roll somewhere?

IMHO, do it right and get the correct parts from a dealership. Using the wrong ID hose, T's or missing the restrictor pill will mess up your boost levels. That being said, if you have a well stocked parts store nearby, you might be able to match everything up exactly. Just don't use any hose or connector that looks "close" and don't lose the pill

I don't need to replace anythinng before the T just the hose that connects to the T to the solenoid. Also I live down the street from checker/orielly so ill try there first because the nerest dealer is 40 min away
