    I hate it when that happens. They get so lazy...

    We need more details...any smoke...any weird noise...other mods...how are you telling you have no boost pressure...

    No smoke nothing seems wrong but there's no boost and my boost pressure gauge doesn't go past zero. I have aftermarket up pipe and down pipe and my exhaust seems a lot louder after it stopped working

    Check all of the rubber hoses around the turbo assembly. The first, most likely event was the breaking or separation of a hose connection. Without those, the turbocharger will not function properly, if at all. Next, if those are completely connected, if the turbo still does not function, check that the small hose at your bypass valve is connected properly. Pictures of your engine bay would be very helpful.
