If you reached full boost in 1st before shifting to 2nd, then your wastegate may be stuck open. Your description says the car is running fine other than lack of boost, so that would rule out any boost plumbing leaks presumably. I would suspect a bad turbo as the very last thing.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
