Default what are the signs of a blown turbo?

so lately i have had some boost issues sometimes i get full 18psi and other time i only get 5psi, i was starting to hope that the turbo was fine and the turbo to manfold gasket had blown out or started to leak but to night on my way to work im on the highway in fouth gear and i get on it to pass someone and i hear a boom and then no boost so i coast then i try to get some boost out of it and my gauge will hit 5 then it surges then nothing. Can it be that maybe my map sensor has quit? i don't have a check engine light (yet) and my vag is at home which i will scan when i get home today to see if any codes have shown up, is there any other reason that this could happen? or is my turbo toast?

if your turbo going bad you would hear grinding sound something like huge hummer drill. having leak like u have if your gasket blown out most likely you would see and hear the leak while inspecting it, even then don’t think you would loose all the pressure… first I would check for any leaks, not just inspecting vacuum hose, but check for leaks using compressor.
once again sound of dying turbo will scare the hell out of u.

that could be your problem, have u tried diode mode? mean if your turbo is fine and you have no vacuum leaks , try cleaning maf sensor and do diode mode... it should keep you out of limp mode
