performance problem

i have a 95 that doent run like it did. in one afternoon i put on a s&b intake, dp f5 tuner, pyro and boost gauges and a high pressure oil crossover. the truck was an animal for it seems like 3 days. it already had a big dp on it with 3 1/2 exhaust and a aftermarket muffler. then the ipr went out about a month later and i repalce it with a new ford one. i recently replace the exhaust with a mbrp 4 in setup and changed the spring in the fpr and it really didnt make any difference. if i remamber right, it use to make about 23#s of boost and now it almost makes 18. i checked the fuel pressure to day and at idle its about 60 warm but when i set the chip to the 120 hp setting, it will go down to 40-50 wide open. anu ideas

Start checking for boost leaks at the intake manifolds, boots, and intake y-pipe (where it connects to the turbo too). Also look for evidence of exhaust leaks at the manifolds and up-pipes. Check to make sure the EBPV is fully open (if you still have it). Cheers!

i already checked all of that, and the ebv is wired open. i checked the icp today and on the stock setting at 2500 rpm, 5th gear and wide open, it had around 2500 psi, on stage 4 which is 80 horse, it had about 3000 psi, and on stage 6 which is suppose to be 120 hp, it dropped to around 2500 psi. all the readings were at 2500 rpm, 5th gear and wide open. thats not to bad for a truck with 247000 miles. but i still dont know why id dosent boost like it did

Check your fuel pressure at idle, and if you are able to, at WOT under load. Make sure that the FPR spring is not kinked or bent. Cheers!
