Could be an actual boost leak, you need to PM me or come over to my place so we can get it sorted out. Do you have a boost leak tester? I have one but it is for the 2.7t, we might be able to adapt it to work on the 1.8t

if you popped a charge hose then you might get black smoke due to a massively rich envirionment, black smoke is unburnt hydrocarbons. I am not available until tonight, but send me a PM maybe we can get this figured out
