It doesnt sound normal.The #'s sound low to me.Have you checked for a boost leak?
Also,post what mods you have done to the vehicle.

Definitely not normal. You should be able to see around 15 stock. And it shouldn't fluctuate. +1 on checkin your boots.

thing is that with wastegate unhooked I can build 28psi....also it seems to build boost steady at 1/2 to 3/4 but when I step on it more then that it will do the boost drop.

it seems to be throttle position related? Im not sure if the TPS Sensor would create boost to fall off but not rpms?

Hm, not really sure at this point. Have you had it scanned for codes?
