Question pac brake kills turbo?

'00 7.3l F250 6spd mnl. 122k
I need to figure this one out. Whenever I turn on the engine brake, I loose the turbo and upper rpms. This happens sometimes without the pacbrake on too. If I simply open the air filter housing, the turbo starts back up. Where should I start looking?

Filters are new, compressor wheel spins free.

Thanks
