Sudden loss of boost pressure

I'm running Ned Ritchie's IA III+ chip in my 81k mi. 20v
Avant, and it has been running flawlessly. But recently, I
have noticed a partial loss of Boost pressure ( from 1.8-1.9
to current 1.4) and the loss has been sudden, not gradual.
Aside from checking the turbo hoses I wonder if any of you
might recommend a check list of things I might try to
restore this sudden loss of oomph.
Am I correct in recalling a thread wherein this happened to
another lister not long ago? Was it repaired by replacing
the MAF sensor??

Any help or advice is appreciated.

Many thanks,
