Question after updating mini max

I just updated my mini max to the newest software. I have noticed now that my boost is more like it was before tuning. Previously, my boost down the road was about 5-10 and on an incline it might get to 15 at 70mph. Now my boost runs 10-12 and will jump to 20-30 going up an incline. The only changes I made was I used to have lbf set at 0 and I let it default to 3 then changed it to 1 but it didn't really make much difference. The new tune does have a lot more pep especially on the low end!
Has anyone else experienced this or is it something I should be concerned about? My mileage is off a little too.

Boost seems to build faster with the new updates from what most people have said so it's normal.

Question after updating mini max

Just an update it was the ebp that was bad. I needed to have a few other things fixed so I took it to the dealer and they said the sensor was bad.
