Boost/vacuum numbers...

Here's question for you experienced q-folk...

While riding in my friend's '88 5000tq, I noticed that when he let up on
the throttle, the boost guage would go down to 0.1 bar; sometimes he
says that he can get to 0.0 bar on a long hill.  In my '91 200tq20v,
I only get down to 0.4 bar (maybe 0.3 sometimes), but never that low.

Do I have a vacuum leak somewhere?  No obvious driveability problems I
can see or feel.  Any ideas of what to check for?  Or is there no

Inquiring minds want to know.
