My apologies if this has been answered, I have searched some forums and google a bunch and not sure where I should start.
So the other day I was coming home from work being tired and 11:30 at night I wasn't in any mood to "handle" my car like I would on any other day. Everything seemed fine heard the turbo spool when I started the car and when I was on the freeway trying to get up to speed my car was extremely sluggish, wouldn't go past about 5k RPM and wasn't able to hear the turbo. I stopped, got gas thinking I had low fuel as my gas gauge isn't working properly right now, start rolling out, heard no turbo spool and had no power still. I got home that night started looking at my motor, everything seemed fine, no smoke, no weird noise or smell. Finally got all the piping and stuff off the turbo and made sure the turbo itself still spun by hand and made sure the blades were not damaged. I checked all inter-cooler piping and I did have what I think is a vacuum line was cracked so I had replaced to no difference. Also, there is no CEL or anything on the dash. So, as of now I have three theories.
1. The turbo pressure sensor is bad
2. The waste gate is stuck open
3. The turbo is just bad.
AKGC is right on the sensors... try cylinder leak test

The WG works off boost not vacuum, if you have no boost the wastegate is naturally closed by spring pressure, you have to pull hard on the arm to open it.
My guess is the flap that closes the WG on the turbine broke off, but it's just my guess.
