Ok so I lost all my boost. Everything was working fine on my way to work this morning and one my way home I noticed that my boost gauge would not go any higher then 0. I have no clue what is wrong. When I was at idle the gauge was reading 20 Hg like its supposed to, and the needle would move like normal except wouldnt read any higher then 0 like I said. If anyone has any idea please let me know.

No Vag-Com. I'm waiting for my uncle to get home from work now so I can go check some vacuum lines and see if that is the problem.

Ok did my checks and my one vacuum line blew out. The one that runs out of the greddy bov/dv i have. From what I could tell it was alittle to close to the exhaust manifold and the heat made it way to weak and next thing ya know a hole. So I went and found some vacuum hose with steel braiding around it and just ran it a little better this time. So all is good for the time being with it, hopefully this one holds up better now. Thanx Dragon
