Lose boost after pull out to pass at full power??

I pulled out to pass some one the other day and after I got by them the boost dropped to 0. If I give it gas at all it will have no power or boost and smoked like you had a smoke switch on but if I let all the off the throttle and coast for a little bit it goes rite back to normal. I have searched this site and don't seem to see anyone else have this problem. It's on a 2006 f350 with just the normal bolt ons if any one could help it would be greatly appreciated!!!!

I've had the same problem on my 03. My initial thought is vgt selenoid. My truck only does it when it's tuned though.

Check all of your CAC boots. Might have blown one.
