It seems more likely to me that the vacuum line for the MAP sensor has come loose or cracked. Find it, follow it. Let us know.

do you have boost? or is just the guage reading inaccurately? If you really have 0psi of boost, the car would be very sluggish, and downright slow.

I think one end goes on the MAP sensor, and one end goes to the LIM below the nosedrive of the supercharger on a Series II.
