Hooked up incorrectly to the wastegate? Simplest solution is usually over looked. Or perhaps the spring is too heavy in the wastegate?

Maybe a hose got pinched or punctured could be leaking or not even working at all. I had a vacuum hose develop a small leak once wouldn't let car make any boost.

the pressure you are setting on the AMS is the waste gate back pressure. you may have to set it way above 38psi to make more than 28lbs of boost. but go up slowly in 2lb adjustments to see where it starts making additional boost. you may have been close to
1 to 1 up till that point. or you may just be out of boost.
