Well when I'm on the highway it normally runs around 16-19ish but today it was around 10-13, the turbo spools up the same and I have the same performance, it just sounds like an air leak when my boost is around 10 and higher

then you probably have a boost leak somewhere. inspect all boots carefully. specifically the turbo to IC pipe boot. very common failure.
it's either a boost leak or an exhaust leak. carefully inspect for soot around the firewall, behind the turbo. you may need to look from underneath with a flashlight.
sometimes it helps to start the truck and from underneath, feel up near the y pipe bellows for exhaust escaping through crack

Re: Need help!

If you just pulled your egr, suspect those orings and gasket.
