Try disconnecting the electrical connection to the solenoid and going for a drive - this will limit to base boost only. If performance is unchanged then you may have a problem with the solenoid. However, your description of hissing noises suggests a possible leak somewhere - the diaphragm in the standard Bosch recirculating dump valve can tear. Also check all your hoses very carfully - sometimes a leak can open up only under boost pressure. The plastic end caps on the intercooler can crack and leak too.
