turbo problems need help

Ok hears my problem i have a 93 rx7 with a garrett gt35r setup on it.. The car was running great for awhile but then started to act up. I started to loose all power and now have no boost. The boost gauge works and says i have boost but the car does not move when you hit the gas. Ive had problems with these turbos before and have had to send them back to garrett for new seals.. Any insite on what this might be?

Where is your boost gauge taking pressure readings from? What kind of boost gauge?

What do you mean your car is not moving? Please be more specific.

Also, if you're building boost and the car isn't going anywhere it could be a number of things.

Timing could cause that, as well as a number of other things.

More details please.
