when i start the truck up, my vanes are sticking (no hissing) and im reading no boost pressure, and truck has no power. i checked the boost gauge and all the boost tubes for leaks and found nothing wrong. we also hooked up my truck to efi and ran the vane test and it passed. also no codes or check engine lights were tripped so im completely baffled. heard rumors of some vane sensor by the turbo that could be bad but unsure. NEED HELP ASAP!!!

please help guys if anyone has any ideas??

Got to be a sensor if everything else is ruled out

Edit: Nevermind, you stated you checked it...

Did you perhaps damage the wires going to the sensor when you changed the mouthpiece out? Or pulled the wire loose?

no boost i think, maybe a few psi if im lucky, the thing that confuses me the most is that its not throwing any codes?

u should go try and drive to see what happens when u floor it and then go to the higher rpms, sensor or not there should be boost at some point
