    I take it your going the "rising rate" method? My intercooler blew or I'd test mine shortly

    Small thread leak is normal.

    You can use non drying pipe sealant on the adjuster thread,

    Yup, that is rising rate line hooked up.

    Good to hear that is somewhat normal. I tightened the adjuster nut a bit and that helped a bit too. Not losing much air at all, just was somewhat surprised to see bubbles there. Sounds like no concern ... thanks for the input!
