Default No boost, no smoke, no codes, collapsing CP. - 12-13-2016, 06:10 PM

I'm at my whits end with this car...

I'm stumped. Tried searching three different forums and can't find anything specific.

Procede shows -4.8psi under load. Checked ic ***** and found no leaks or cracks. Discovered that the rear DV is leaking but that shouldn't cause a zero boost situation, should it? Driving the car it has absolutely no power and the soft rubber ic hose just before the charge pipe shown in the attached picture collapses under load, even just revving the engine.

Found oil in the intercooler, thought that maybe one of the turbos was blown but there's no smoke.

Car has procede rev3 v5, running the 9-10 aggressive E85 stage 1 map and dci.

New vanos, new hpfp, new lpfs, new plugs, new coils.

Worst part is that I am getting zero codes for anything. Idles around 650rpm and has a very slight stumble.

I'm stumped.

You lost me at "Procede shows".

Lose the Procede and let's see some JB4 logs.

I'd also recommend doing a pressure test on the system.

i found my intake tube coupler (the ribbed coupler on my n55) collapsing against itself under WOT runs after it got hot under the hood causing 0 boost

Did you ever figure out the problem? I'm having the same issue right now.
