Default compression test/boost test

I prev did a compression test first to see if any of my cyl were loosing pressure and they read 185/190 psi across the board. Although i tested while the car was cold while some people say to do it while it has been warmed up. Does anyone now if it really matters/because since the readings were so good i didn't bother warming the car up. Also can u connect a boost leak tester up to you intake manafold to check for leaks if you dont find any i the intercooler piping. I heard you can but i just wanna be safe. thanks

yea you can get a boost leak tester and test it by hooking it up to the intake.

And yes you want the engine to be warm because you want to make sure that the oil has been warmed up otherwise your results wont be correct. The test wont work correctly. Id check them again to be positive.
