You probably have a cracked intercooler boot. Lets you build a tiny bit of boost, but blows off everything else.

Inspect all the boots and tighten. You have 2 on the Hot (driver's) side, 2 on the Cold (pass) side, and 2 orange ones under the Y-pipe tha feeds the cold air into the intake plenums.

Take a look behind the turbo for soot, like Joe said it could be up-pipes, but I'm inclinded to think intercooler boots if it happened "all of a sudden".
