OKay, update --
So THANKGOD I didn't loose the vacuum hose containing the restrictor pill... the line was still in good condition, so I put that back on.
The boost is now spiking at 15psi then fluctuating between
10-15psi.. the needle on my boost guage just bounces back and forth.. it's so weird. It sometimes will spike at 15 then steady out at 10-11psi... but it's really just intermittent..
?????? Anything from anybody will help... my only thought is that maybe the BOV is faulty... One 3rd gear pull I hit 15psi without hearing any release from the BOV... I dont know..
