I just scanned my car and this code popped up. My turbo spools a bit at first but then dies out and it's just the engine running. Any idea what it could possibly be?

00 GTI GLS 1.8t

Also does anyone know where to get a good set of boost hose kit that are priced pretty well? Don't know if the ebay ones are worth the time and money.

ive been unable to find a boost leak, diverter valve is good, n249 is good, cleaned my throttle body. it must be a hidden leak, even though ive done a smoke test at 20 lbs. oh well, good luck finding it.
