Turbo Compressor Housing

I just changed out the stock compressor wheel for a Billet Wheel from RiffRaff. I removed the turbo to do this, got everything back together put my boost Leak Detector on and now have a leak at bottom of the compresor housing. When I put the housing back on the turbo I was very carefull to make sure I went by the numbers. My question, are leaks common around the compressor housing? I'll pull it back off and see what I can do.
Thanks All,
Bill

Double check that the compressor housing oring is still in place and not pinched in any way. Nice thing is, you can do that with the turbo still on the truck.
