No boost/low boost

As the title says I'm having a low/ no boost. I just redid my heads, truck runs like a dream, except that there is a hissing noise coming from the turbo(I think). When you get on it even easy it gets louder, but it's not a poping noise it's just a loud hissing noise. I'm thinking maybe the up-pipes aren't clamped together good enough? Just wanted to through this on here and see what anyone else thought. Going to try and fix it tomorrow. Thanks in advance.

Kyle

Refitting the up pipes to the turbo and I still have the hissing noise. If I unplug the vgt it's goes away what is this problem? Something with my turbo? Before I worked on it noting was wrong

Seems you checked the exhaust side did you check the intake side for problems?
Loose fit, split in intake pipeing, air filter problem?

Are you sure the flex section on the up pipes didnt go bad. Also the v band clamp for the y pipe to turbo has to be perfectly flat together or it will leak. i use a ratchet strap to the core support behind the right side head light to pul it in place before i put the v band clamp on.

I'm having the same issue (posted). I did the same thing with unplugging the turbo and it did the same thing. I was reading where the tube of the drivers side exhaust manifold becomes coked up. I unplugged that sensor as well and did the same thing. So next thing I'm gunna clean it out. U might wanna try that as well. Ppl be having the same probs as and had success with it.
