Should have bought a STi ...haha...

What makes you think the turbo is not working? The boost gauge is showing vaccum yet the boost isn't there? Any recent work on the car? You might have a boost leak but you should still be getting boost AND vaccum.

Isn't the stock BOV 100% recirculating? It might be hard to hear it. If you installed an aftermarket BOV and just recently installed a boost gauge, are you sure you installed it properly? WHen you put the pedal to the metal, were you on a low gear or were you flooring it on 4th/5th. When you are on second gear at 3,500RPM for a few seconds, step on the gas all the way and see if you are getting a pull. If your turbo isn't working, it shouldn't even pull at all, but if it is, it should be a good pull in this gear at those RPM's. Just my .02

No i'm not running a stock BOV i'm running Blitz its been install quite a long time. i'm not sure if the guages have to do anything with the power lost? On low gear and car does not give the pull. Even when i start off in 1st the car does not even pull.. i'm scared its the turbo went on the car.. Is there a shop i can bring it down too that can help me out???

Which vaccum line did you cut when you installed your boost gauge?

Just undo what you did when you installed your guage and see if the boost returns.

that's odd..you have some vaccum readings but no boost..if it has a leak ..you should have boost like 5psi or lower than stock.....what the F is that i haven't heard such a thing...but you might want to check ur wastegate maybe it's broken or something...as far as i know the wastegate is the one holding the pressure on ur turbo..instead of producing boost it open's right away..and that's my best bet but im not putting my finger on it ...oh well good luck

I think you're having the same problem as one of my friend's.

He has a Blitz BOV on his 02' wrx. That's it !
Somehow, the Blitz BOV screwed up his turbo wastegate.
It's like, his car is slower than a echo. No positive boost. Max is 0 psi. Turbo wasn't working. No matter how hard you press the gas, it's a constant acceleration. A slow one !
You should really remove your Blitz BOV and get it fixed by the dealer. Otherwise, the fix is over $1k at private shops.
My friend's car was reported to have a clogged catalytic covertor and a damaged wastegate. I don't understand what he said, but he told me that it's something doing with his Blitz bov.
