No boost?

Today I removed my inter cooler to wrinkle paint the end tanks and reinstalled it. Made a run to work to pick up something I'll need tomorrow and on the way home during wot I had what I thought was a boost loss due to hose blow off. So I limped it the rest of the way home. It was making about .45 bar but slowly and off. Everything else was good, oil temps, pressure, afr(odd since I had what I thought was a leak but I figured I had a flex able leak).
Heard a metallic randomly timed "clak" sound that I can't figure out. Engine runs good, sounds good, nothing odd sounding on idle. But now there is no boost.
Checked all hoses, connections. Everything's tight. Something's wrong, seems like turbo? Could it be my diverter valve? I use the 964 valve from vwaudigroup, black plastic. I have to fly out tomorrow so I had to go to sleep before I take it apart tonight, so I'll take opinions now.
Any ideas? Thanks.
Turbo powa!
