Strong off bottom but falls flat at 30 psi

Just started today. Punches off the line just fine, but at 60 mph at 20 psi if you try to accelerate to 80 mph, once the boost hits 32 or so, the engine seems to cut out.

Whine from turbos is new today
Check engine light came on
If I baby it at 70 mph and stay below 30 psi it is driveable
Just had a leaking high pressure fuel line replaced at dealer
120,000 miles F250

I am 3 1/2 hrs from home. Am I doing damage by driving it? everything seems normal. It is as if it is not getting fuel? Engine just cuts at higher rmp/higher boost.

sounds like the high pressure turbo is stuck

if you have a CEL, you should be posting the DTC

So when the dealer went about fixing the file leak, he first tried removing the turbos to avoid taking the cab off. That was 3 days ago...I'm not on a witch hunt, but is the possible stuck turbo in any way related to the recent removal?

Thanks!!!
