typically, if you dont hear your BOV, your not boosting. So you probably have a vaccum leak. So check for leaks, everywhere.

and yes, your wastegate hose connects to vacuum. I'm not sure if I read this correctly, but did you have your BOV nipple connected to the wastegate? who what why when

if your boost gauge isnt reading past 0, then your most likely not boosting at all, in which cause you most likely have a vaccum leak like I said in the first place.

on the bov i read that there are two nipples..like me =).jk..but yea two nipples that reads atmosphere and one to the vacuum..my boost gauge wont go pass 0 but i can hear it spool up and i can hear the bov and everithing..so iunno..maybe i'll push it harder and actuallie go pass 4k rpm..

is the bov set to atmosphere or vaccum? If its set to vaccum, you wont hear anything. But, then your boost gauge should be reading something.
