I just want to thank Jean at AA for being patient with me, he also referred me to some tech guys at AEM to troubleshoot. FYI, they had a great idea to check the gauge to see if it was registering boost. They had me hook up a bike pump with a pressure gauge to the sensor. I connected the bike hose and sensor with an extra wire. Turned the car on and started pumping! Gauge showed boost past 16 psi.... Duh!?!

Anyways... I'm putting out 9-10psi on the blower! Afr's look pretty good but now I think I'm ready to at least dyno....
Great to know that you found the I am assuming your car should pull a bit harder too since you had a boost leak

Well keep us updated!! See you next time!
