IF there was such an issue, the car would throw a limp mode. but your car seems to run fine just no boost which makes me believe there is something triggering that state and enforcing no CEL. For example my meth kit could open the wastegates and the car would still throw no CELs.

I know you have no meth kit, but do you have anything AFTERMARKET on the car? an elaborate alarm system might offer valet mode where there is no boost.
