Complete loss of boost

While driving on the highway yesterday, I felt an immediate loss of power. There was no loud noises or anything dramatic that happened in that moment. On my accessport I can see that there is no boost being built at all. i don’t see any hoses loose to the turbo. And there’s now an airy whistling noise all the time while on the throttle. I’m guessing something related to the blow off valve? Any thoughts or guidance on this? Thanks everybody!

Do you have a blow off valve? Any mods? If there is a whooshing noise, something definitely popped off. Follow your boost pipes again, something is loose or broken. Or a cracked intake manifold?

Hose probably popped off somewhere. As recommended, do a thorough inspection from the turbo to the intake manifold.
