Subject: 9000 Boost Problems, rush of air from nearside (uk car)

My 9000 CSE 2.3 Full Pressure Turbo is giving me grief. ( a-bloody-gain!) When I hit the accelerator there is a rush of air from somewhere on the nearside of the engine bay. It only does this under load, I cant reproduce with the car standing. Needless to say the acceleration is down, although not dreadful. Can someone give me a clue as to what might be happening. My mechanical knowledge is somewhat limited, I guess the boosted air from the turbo is being lost to a greater or lesser extent before it gets to the engine. Boost guage doesn't seem to be going as high as it did, but may be wrong. Your help as always is much appreciated. Al
