Default Boost problem I think?

Here's the quick and short of it.
I had blown my motor in my 2003 GT a year and a half ago. I just had a garage put in a used one they found..I just picked it up today. They used the AGP bws that agp were selling awhile ago but the Mopar bov isn't working. I am sure we installed it right (did this before they put it in) but there is no sound coming out and the car doesn't seem to have a lot of boost I think; how much I have no idea? I don't have a boost gauge installed.
The car runs fantastic but it doesn't seem to have the gut's it used to when I first installed the stage 1 kit on the old motor and the bov isn't making noise.
I have a stage 1 kit with the bigger intakes. As far as I know they connected everything properly.
By no means am I a techy when it comes to turbo stuff.
Anybody got any thoughts on this?

I'm thinking the vacuum lines are mixed up somewhere after reading the posts in the link you provided me..thanks for that.

In the last post in that thread this was the problem:
"my boost problem someone had switched #2 an 3 vac solenoids. I got a diagram from a guy on turbo dodge that showed how the lines should be installed hooked them back up the right way and now wur making 12 psi boost."

I could not find the diagram for the vacuum lines though.
Anyone have one I could see?

Thanks guys! All the vacuum lines look good, If the Mopar bov isn't working would that cause any problems with the hp?

Angry Re: Boost problem I think?

A little update here:

Had the car checked for boost leaks and exhaust leaks at the place that put the new motor in and watched them do it. Neither were leaking. No boost leaks and no exhaust leaks!
Checked the Mopar (plate) BOV and it was Installed correctly but still no sound!
I can still hear the turbo flutter a little when I let off the gas since day one.
Removed vacuum lines from solenoid #2 Should give me full boost. Took it for a burn but didn't pound it too hard and it had more power but not like it should at full boost and not like it used too. Still no sound from Mopar BOV and still fluttered a little when I backed off the gas pedal.
Reset the Stage 1 ecm in case it went into limp mode (removed battery cable for 10 mins). Is it possible the Stage 1 ecm might have got wacked out or something? Is the AGP BWS turbo the one they were selling a couple years ago for cheap not working properly?
I am at a loss now and so fkn frustrated I am ready to drive it off a cliff!
Anybody have any suggestions? Did I miss something? HELP!
I am going to post this over at Ptcrew as well so I get more opinions I hope.
