Well, It was the best of days.. It was the worst of days. Started off strong, as I did a lot of cleaning and installed some new shiny parts. Ended with me driving the car with 0 boost. I cant hear any spool or Psssht from the BOV. I can confirm the turbo spins freely. I may have a leak somewhere between the TB andf the turbo but visuals all check OK. Any thoughts on where to go from there?

A picture to make myself feel like I didnt make negative progess all weekend:


Edit: Problem Solved. Clamp on pipe between IC and BOV hose had catastrophic failure. Easy Fix.

Engine bay looks great. Glad you found the clamp, that's an easy fix. Now is probably a good time to do a boost leak check. Inevitably even clamps that are tight can end up not being seated correctly and leaking. It's just one more thing to check off the list.

Keep up the good progress

Thanks, good advice. I'll look into doing that very soon.
