Dontcha just hate it when your car gets hit by 
simul-freakin-taneousness? At least it's fortunate that your cooling 
system didn't overheat greatly while the fan link was busted (hence, 
if there's an oem radiator, it should survive the episode). As to the 
continued lack of A/C and low boost: this combination of symptoms 
suggests possible problem with the MFTS. Disconnecting it temporarily 
it would restore A/C compressor operation and boost--if the MFTS is 
actually the cause of those problems.
