2003 Audi A4 Quattro Question: Coolant sensors, low boost, constant fans.

 

Question

I'm throwing a 0118 code which is the high circuit. I replaced the sensor on the rear of the head and lower radiator. Started it up, same issues of constant fans, will not operate over 150*, reads cold on the factory gauge, normal boost for turbo is 9-10lbs, now in "limp mode" will only hit 4-5lbs. It's really frustrating. I just did the thermostat early summer. But always possible I guess.
