OMG, you serious? glad you found it...
you still need to sort those lines out though, looks like a hot mess
mechanical boost gauge are accurate to a point, usually less at higher boost
IMO it is worth it to have the vac displayed as well, it helps in cases like these, if your gauge looks broken, you know there is a vac/boost leak there and you will know in the future what to look for...
you just learned a valuable lesson through trial and error, congrats

ps-and even you are welcome

i let a friend drive my car the other day and apparently its not all that down on power. i just thought it would have more.

now that i have a boost gauge; how should i adjust my BOV?

ANY ANY vacuum source needs to be T-ed off your intake manifold.
