05 Turbo problems

Today I removed my turbo and cleaned it. I was only seeing 19-20 lbs of boost, is the reason for cleaning. I did everything in the video by srmastertech on youtube. The only thing I forgot to do was mark where the clamp lined up on the turbo. Also, the drain tube was the biggest pain in the *** too. After I got everything reinstalled, I took it for a test drive. Now I only build 10lbs of boost if im lucky? What in the world could I have done? Before I removed the turbo, I noticed the vgt solenoid, where you plug in the wire was kinda broke. When I reinstalled the wire, I didnt put it in just right and it snapped the rest of it off! I bearly even pressed on it, it was very brittle. I had to kind of zip tie it into place for the time being. I dont really want to buy the whole solenoid if this is problem, instead ill just buy a used 03 turbo. Is the soleniod the problem? Ill upload a pic of it to show you guys exactly whats goin on. Also ill post picks of my cac boots(I think), too see if you guys think anything looks out of line. Thanks for any help, Cody.

Check your bellowed up pipes for cracks. Look for black soot... A small crack could cause your low boost issues.

alright, also, does it matter if the clamp for up pipes and turbo is moved? when i put everything back together, i rotated the clamp to the drivers side to get more clearance with a wrench.

05 Turbo problems

Maybe check the up pipe to turbo connection my first turbo job I didn't get the up pipe properly seated and it sounded like it had an air leak at idle.

the picture of the lower side of the tube shows the tube is about 3/8" out of the bellows and as far down as the clamp is it may not be sealing.

05 Turbo problems

Ok I'll see what I can do when I get home. I'll also take a better pic of it at the turbo. I'm also pretty sure I still have stock up pipes, but I'm deleted, and don't you have to seal off a hole when you delete the egr? If so, maybe I just need to but new up pipes

Well I believe I found a couplem problems...and possibly another one, a BIG one . I took a look at my manifolds and took pics for you guys to see, it doesnt look good at all. Also, look on the drivers side, where the head meets the block, please tell me that is now a blown HG sign.

Did you check the valley? Maybe the drain pipe didn't get seated properly. Did you replace the o-rings on it?
