So in 2nd gear you pull out to overtake something and you don't hear the wastegate make "WARRRP" noises?

What kind of performance are you getting? 0-62mph in 6 seconds? Or more than that? Is the car reeeeally slow?

I'm sure others on this forum can give you more accurate and detailed instructions, but it's either going to be:
  1. The gauge's circuit isn't working (i.e. gauge, wiring, or most likely the sender has failed)
  2. Leak / Crack in exhaust leading to the hot side of the turbocharger (so the turbocharger doesn't get spun up)
  3. Leak / Torn O-ring in the Cold Side of the turbocharger (so the gasses escape and you don't get Forced Induction)
