Leaking Turbo pipes?

Hi all

I have a rush of air coming from the engine when revving above 2000rpm, and when I chnage gear the air rush hisses as the revs drop. I am worried people think I am trying to mimic a Subaru!! I am also getting a lower than normal mpg around town.

From searching the forum, the likely cause is a split pipe from the turbo. I am going to have a look at the weekend, but can anyone tell me where to look for the possible culprit pipes? Are the pipes accessible from the bay, or do i need to get under the car.

Many Thanks and Happy New Year!
