According to your description, it sounds like you have a tear in your upper=
 intercooler hose. I had the same problem but did not experience any boost =
beyond 1.0 bar (indicated on the dash gauge).

I heard a whooshing noise under the hood every time I got on the boost, but=
 could not build beyond atmospheric. I could not feel the tear until I actu=
ally removed the hose and inspected it. This was the reason I replaced my i=
ntercooler hoses with Samco silicone hoses, which can be sourced from Euro-=
Car Service in Ohio- Tom is a good guy.

If you find an alternative cause to your problem, please let us know on the=
