    lol , Did you not want to take my word for it? Just do a boost leak test, it takes 10 min. If you dont find any leaks then start troubleshooting a wastegate and/or cracked housing issue.

    did some more reading. looks like only 2 things could cause my problem. boost leak and wastegate

    alright sounds good. im pretty sure there are no cracks but i will check again. im really thinking its the wastegate but we'll see i guess

    Either a boost leak, cracked exhaust housing, or f-up wastegate flapper or actuator. To test the wastegate, pull the boost reference line off the actuator and apply compressed air to the actuator, you should notice the actuator moving freely and hear the flapper open and close. Do a boost leak test to make sure you dont have any leaks. I usually do it at the turbo inlet so the air pressurizes the entire system @ 25 psi, then spray soapy water anywhere you hear "hissing" to find the leak

    any other possibilities? i've read that maybe the wastegate not closing fully will do it? how do i remedy/check that

    Most likely a boost leak.
