A brake booster baffle

Yes I am baffled and so are my tech minded buddies. I did the intake manifold cleaning and gaskets, generator and positive cable, fuel filters, EGR delete, and because the tandem pump was dripping on the right turbo replaced that too. Everything worked when I fired it up but when I stepped on the brakes it had insufficient boost. Replaced all the hard vacuum lines and bypassed the flexible ones, still no proper boost, ran a line directly from pump to booster, nada. Replaced the new pump with another oem brand new pump. No difference. Then I parked a Ford Focus beside the Touareg and ran a line to the touareg booster. Great boost! Tested the old pump and the new pump on the floor. Old pump created 18 hg new pump could not create more than 13 hg. Is it possible to have 2 new OEM tandem pumps from the dealer both be faulty? I was told they are tested at the factory and there is only one part number for the V10 touareg. Stumped.
