Check your CAC tubes for holes or cracks. I had low boost and i found 1 crack and one of the clamps on the turbo intake boot fell down allowing boost to escape. This is the #1 place to loose boost.

Have you checked the turbo?
is the truck blowing any excess smoke or any other signs that something is wrong besides low power

Just a little white smoke when u mash the throttle bur that's it seems. Like the power is the same since I bought the truck a month ago little better throttle response since the arir intake and turbo back exhaust I should put in here that the console also says I am getting only about 14 mpg also
