Yeah sounds like it is. Mine was doing the same thing. I unplugged the soleniod on the turbo pedestal until I eliminated the valve altogether. You can unplug the solenoid won't hurt a thing. If you look on the front of the turbo pedestal you will see a two wire plug with a wire clip...just unplug while truck is off and it will stop your valve from closing. Hopefully your valve isn't stuck parially closed if it is you might be able to reach under the turbo and you will feel the actuation arm that opens and closes your valve and try to move it by your hand. If not you probobly will have to yank the turbo to clean the valve. You don't want to disconnect the wastegate, but you could pull the red pressure line that compresses the spring in the acuator. That will keep your wastegate closed longer to build boost quicker. Just make sure you plug the red line the best method is to slip it over the bolt on the intercooler clamp. Here is a pic of the turbo pedestal to help you out
