DSIM Vacuum/Boost Leak

Having a hard time locating the leak, but I suspect it is one of the couplers. Vacuum leak disappears if I push down on the upper manifold, and gets worse if I lift it up. Any suggestions?

For a link someone just posted in the general tech section:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=215469

Sounds like looking at those couplers is the way to go, PITA though it may be.
