I was driving to work today and of course, there was an old lady going 35 in a 55. So i passed her in a fast fashon...and all of the sudden, my car started shaking really bad and lost all power. My boost gauge now flutters rapidly between 20 on the vaccum side and 5psi on the boost and the car doesnt have the power to move it's self. It shakes so bad, i'm worried that it'll rip my motormounts. Please Help!

Nick, Check the big hoses to and from the intercooler. You may have split one or the clamps were loose and it got dislocated. If that isn;t it, check all the other vacuum hoses everywhere

Well i figured it out...
Pulled the valve cover and one of the rockers slipped the cam lobe and the exhaust valve got bent. Luckily,I've got a spare head to throw on. thanks for all your help...
