Seems like your turbo-to-intercooler or intercooler-to-throttle body
hose is cracked. I had exactly the same problem. Your gauge does not
show above 1.0 ( atmospheric pressure ), because all the boost escapes
into atmosphere. The hoses are $50-100 form the dealer. Wrapping with
self amalgamating tape can be a temporary fix.
