Boost/vacuum leak?

Just recently, my car feels like its losing power, it doesnt pull as hard, and I seem to hear a louder hissing than normal from the turbo. Also boost drops, it doesnt stay at 10 psi, it will drop to about 7-8psi. I havent had a chance to check the piping, but could this be a leak somewhere?

same **** happens to me,what the hell is it??????
could be a exhaust leak in the exhuast manifold
i had a similar problem not too long ago. for me what fixed it was changing the gasket between the block and the exhaust mani. might not be your problem. but i know it was mine!

I figured out, I looked at it, 30 seconds later I found a 1" cut in one of my couplers. Changed it, good as new.
