No boost

I just finished installing my BPD oil cooler last night. During this project I decided to open the turbo and give it s clean. Before I started I was getting about 15psi of boost at WOT. When I finished the turbo, everything worked like it should, I even pulled the plug on the back of the VGT and worked it with a magnet, everything was free and operating. So sitting in the garage I would open it up a bit and according to my CTS and dash idiot gauge I had 0-1 psi of boost, the VGT% was 77% at idle and would move to 55% as I gave it throttle... Am I missing something? Do I need a load on it before it will really open up?

I checked all my connections, no intake or exhaust leaks could be found...

Thanks for the help.

At WOT you shouldn't see boost either try mid ranges or near WOT. Have you checked for leaks.

Ok let me back up, no boost from idle to 2500, nothing in between.

I checked for leaks by hand, could feel/hear anything... BUT I'm in my garage so it echoes a bit... Is there a better way to check for leaks?

Just bugs me that I went backwards on my boost after cleaning the turbo...

Well figured it out, the hose from the MAP sensor was stiff, brittle and cracked, the port on the intake was also partially plugged. New hose and a quick clean took me from 1 psi to 23 psi...
