New 08 Evo X question

I just recently bought a new 08 Evo X and I had to take it back to the shop because my check engine light had come on. There is about 18,000 miles on the car. Anyways they checked it and said that one of the hoses that goes to my turbo was slit and they needed to replace it but they didnt have the replacement on hand and had to order it. They did something to get the hose back on there but now it seems that lost a TON of turbo boost. I dont even hear the turbo spooling anymore when I get on it. Could this be caused by not having the proper hose on there and I just need to wait until they get it in and replace it? Or could it be another issue?

we dont know what hose it was? if it was a pressure source or wastgate line the turbo would be overboosting. if it was just a vac line that was split, how come you didnt just replace it. mitsu will sell vaccum line in rolls, not in custom fit lengths. so your better off hitting the hardware store or auto parts place and getting the amount of hose you need in the proper size. Also do you have any mods done to your vehicle? do you have a boost gauge to confirm you are not boosting as high? Like i said if it was a split pressure line, then you were overboosting, now its properly fixed it wont go as hight because it is connected to the wastegate. first mod for any evo stock or not should be a boost gauge

I took it in today and they said they need to replace some hoses going to the turbo. I guess its over boosting. They said its getting like 35 pounds of boost when there is normally around 17-18. Now another question is with it over boosting is that going to cause my MPG to go down? Because I swear this thing is eating gas like a fat kid eats cake

i told you it was the hoses and it wasnt done correctly. yes 35psi will eat as much fuel as your car can throw at it, but you were probably also running way lean and could have blown up your motor.
