Have you checked all of your boots from the turbo to the intercooler ??? and check the wiring to the VGT you might have broken a wire ????

You may want to check that all of the intake bolts are tight and that the intake is flat and sealed against the block, it definately sounds like ya are sucking air somewhere.

I would still spray the boots with soapy water. You could have a small crack.
