Boost leak issue could it be A & A BOV?

So ive had basically no boost for the past 3 weeks. I took it to a shop and they did a smoke test because doing some searching on here ive found its probably a pipe that has become brittle and cracked. Anyway they found no leaks but said the Active autowerks BOV was not holding pressure and could be the cause of underboost. Is this a common thing that happens? More importantly what other things can i check for a boost leak? Anything helps. thanks in advance.
