Is it stock tuning? Or whose tunes and which one are you running?

325 HP engine pumping 22 psi of boost not showing the power to the road is something not technically correct.
What is the weight of the vehicle and your 0-60 time?
ScanGauge can also display hp on the dial. At least it did show 220 hp on my 174 hp Mercedes.

It's not your turbo... Other wise the turbo wouldn't spool up until high rpms or wouldn't produce 20+ psi. You need to look elsewhere. Checking the fuel pressure is a good place to start, check the ICP volts to. But if your building 22# then it seems like the fueling is there...

He is stock. What he described is pretty normal. Put a tune on it if you want some performance.

my brother has a 04 6.6 duramax and he beat me off the line and down the road even though my truck is about 900lbs more he has 25 less hp and 50lbs less torque then me... so if this is the normal for this truck I guess its time to tune it up.. I pulled some more values from my scangauge IRP.23.0 @ idle and 50.7 WOT and ICP 580 @ idle and 2200 wot are these with in spec... also since I am not familiar with the tolerance of the various iteam that need to be monitored is there a site were I can get them also my cam and crank positions are not in sync as per the scangauge can this be a poor performance causing issue... thanx again for everybodys input

Wrong numbers to compare
Assuming your truck weight 8000 lb, you have 25.6 lb per each HP.
He's got 23.6
Sport cars are considered those with less than 20 lb per HP and sounds like you want to go there?
