lost boost pressure no codes and engine runs fine

I was getting on the highway tonight, as I accelerated I heard what sounded like a backfire and lost all boost pressure. I have the Edge CS installed with the boost displayed along with engine load displayed. Engine load went way up and boost is none. The engine ran fine and no codes came up. Please help is this a blown turbo, or what? It is a 2002 Excursion with 210,000 miles no upgrades other than Edge programmer.

Im no 7.3 guru but it sounds to me like you blew an intercooler boot off.

X2. I'd bet $1 on a donut that's it. Take the piping out, clean any oil off of the ends, and lightly sand the ends with a low grit sand paper. Right before you stab them in put a little bit of hairspray on to help it stick.
