Exclamation *#%@^*! TURBO!!

ok, Everything seemed pretty good after cleaning up the engine & reseating the boots. But, tonight, I went for a short ride & could hear what sounded like a vacuum leak.....and I had NO BOOST AT ALL!!! So, I got to the mechanics shop which was closed & checked my gauge line, it keeps coming out. It was FINE!! Everything 'seems' fine! When I got back in & left, it was normal again!! I'm going to kill it!!!!It only does this crap at nite on icy roads (not really, but it seems that way)
I'm not sure why I was hearing such a OBVIOUS vacuum sound, ANYONE GOT A CLUE???
Wastegate, EBPV or tube??? HELLLLPPPP

maybe its something with the gauge itself. could have sprung a leak inside there, and is blowing out in the pillar?

just a thought, i could be totally wrong here

Checked & rechecked. But wouldn't it STILL be doing it? It went from zero boost back up to normal & the 'vacuum' sound was gone. Whether it was a vacuum sound or hiss, not sure. Thats why I checked the boots 1st!! after the line
what does it sound like if the wastgate or ? else gets stuck open or closed???

Is the truck cold when it's doing it? Are you sure it's not the EBPV?
