I have had a boost problem for quite some time now and cant figure it out i checked all the clamps and have a new apr r1 dv and its not throwing a code. my turbo hold boost at anything under 8 but at WOT its flutters over and under 9psi and kinda sounds like its farting. If anyone knows what it might be please let me know. Thanks

Scan for codes, try to find the leak or if not just take it to a shop.

I tried that and nothing came up I dont want to take it to a shop because i know i can fix it myself. I just cannot diagnose the problem.

You should make yourself a boost leak test pipe if you have access to an air compressor. I was having major boost issues a while back, found that my crank case breather was busted in half. This of course was after checking mostly all the lines and hoses
