And if nothing else, another user suggests you can "just look at it as an excuse to get some silicone hoses in there."
If it sounds like this is what you're dealing with, there are a few things you can investigate.
If despite your efforts, you can't locate the source of the leak or suspect something worse going on, you can always reach out to a mechanic or other professional. Experts on diesel problems will quickly be able to eliminate that troublesome boost leak whistling and get your truck back to peak performance.
