Default Need Help starts and stalls

1990 miata, Flyin miata voodoo II kit. Ran perfectly. AC compressor was dead. replaced condensor, dryer, and to remove old compressor and install new compressor, had to remove the silicon outlet tube from the turbo to the intercooler. Thought I put it back on right, but its very hard to get the tube over the turbo outlet. When i tried to start the car, it started and then stalled about 1 or 2 seconds later. I think it's a vaccum leak from that hose not being fully on.

If there any trick to getting that hose on? The outlet from the turbo is pointing straight down toward the ground. Hard to access it properly.

Do you still have the mass air flow on the intake..?? If you do and its loose or off, yes it can easily cause this........Hope it helps
