I really need some help i swapped out my valve cover gasket now i put everything back together and im getting 0 boost. Gauge goes to 0 and stops. I made sure everything was hooked up and vacum lines are good. Any help would be great.

You do realize there's no relation between a valve cover gasket change and boost pressure, yes?

Start by checking to see if your wastegate arm is still connected.

Yes, there should be an e-clip there. Not sure what size though.

I knew it... :wink:
I argued with those clips for a while, then I figured out how to hit the canister down with the butt of a hammer.
That'll angle the arm up enough that the arm won't fall off when that blessed clip does.
