Default question about locating boost leak

Is it possible to locate a boost leak by using carburetor cleaner spraying it over the engine to locate the general area of the boost leak.. In older cars I know that this works and the engine will increase in revs when a leak detected.. just wondering cause I have a boost leak but don't have a air tank or a pressure tester ..
