HARSH POWER DROP

Hi can any one help, i had to fit a boost valve the weekend after getting my car on the computer due to power loss finding out that my ecu or waste gate solenoid was the fault, but when testing the solenoid with a battery this seemed to work so it points to the ecu, i was told this was the easy fix, after fitting and trying to set the boost valve i found i could not reach the 1 bar max without the car having a slam on the breaks efect, so its running around 0.7 bar but feels as the power is there all the way to around 4, 4.5000rpm then creeps up instead of shoot up the rev counter that is not the boost guage. Thanks Tom

Is the PILL missing out of the boost line to the "T"?
