Step one is to use your ecu to perform a basic function test of the boost solenoid. It should chatter when commanded on. Second, pull the lines off the solenoid and verify the Normally Open (NO) port flows freely, and the Normally Closed (NC) port does not flow at all - test this with solenoid DE-ENERGIZED. I'll usually just draw a little vacuum on the NC line with my mouth, then seal the line with my tongue. You can feel if it's holding vacuum or not.
Next is to simply visually verify condition of your lines and inspect the clamps/zipties to satisfy yourself they don't look like they're leaking.
From my experience, the most common cause of boost control issues is an improperly plumbed solenoid. Not being critical or accusatory of you; I've done it myself more than once!
Ensure you've got your MAC valve configured like this:
Port 1 is Normally Closed or NC - this means the valve will block any signal to the top of the WG until you begin energizing the valve with duty cycle. The bottom of the WG diaphragm gets full boost signal, and you'll be operating on spring pressure only.
Port 2 is Normally Open - this means the top of the diaphragm is vented to atmosphere and no chance of any pressure/vacuum building up on top of the diaphragm
When you energize the valve with duty cycle - you'll be allowing some pressure to get from Port 1 to Port 2, which will act on the top of the diaphragm, counteracting some of the pressure on the bottom of the diaphragm.
If all that is correct, I'd move on to pressure testing (only 10-15psi) the diaphragm of the WG. Usually a problem here will result in overboost though, so probably not the issue.
Then take a good look around for any signs of exhaust leaks. In the case of my current turbo car, I was underboosting. I went through the whole process above and all was good. Was really scratching my head and just recently discovered I had a nice crack in my manifold...so my WG and spring were just fine - the problem was a cracked manifold was leaking the pressure required to drive the turbine harder.
Hope this doesn't come off remedial or condescending - it's not meant that way. You should easily be able to get boost pressure about 2.5 times greater than spring pressure... So unless your WG spring is only 3-4 lbs, I think your issue is likely elsewhere.
