No stock truck is going to build 2olbs of boost, but you should be seeing 15-17, check for leaks or kinks in the tubing leading to the gauge, as well as boost leaks at your intake boots ( cracked boots, or loose clamps) . If all that is good your turbo may be going South, but my bet is loose intake clamps.
