    Default Blown a boost pipe off!

    My cdti 150 vectra has been missing ever so slightly when on part throttle so after reading a few threads on here I decided to clean the EGR valve out. Did this and went for a blast up the road at first it was ok then seemed to loose boost then went into limp mode showing code 4000 EGR flow malfunction. Reset the code then it did the same again. I decided I would just rev it for a bit see if it would clear itself, so sat there for about 3 mins holding it at 3k revs when the boost pipe blew off. Think it comes from the intercooler as hard plastic then onto rubber to the inlet. The rubber hose blew off the hard plastic one.
    Anyone got any ideas of what my problem is and how to resolve it?

    Just one more thing regarding the missfire if you listen out the window when accelerating gently you can hear the turbo whistle almost like a whoosh then it missfire and the sound totally changes.
