Thats annoying, maybe you need to do a smoke test to see if there are any boost or vac leaks.

Basically, they blow some sort of non toxic smoke or steam into the inlet tract, with a machine, which then reveals if there is a leak in any of the hoses, joints, intercooler or inlet system, as you can see the smoke escape, there are videos on YouTube showing you how to diy the job at home with rudimentary household products.
