yeah you should. truck in sig, On a merge on to the freeway kind of acceleration, i am at 12-20, WOT i can hit 32. cruising at 70 around 4 and cruising at 55 about 1. I can hit 32PSI empty or loaded in any of my setting (tow, economy, race)

Your max boost will vary based on the tune and the truck. but even stock you should see more than 9 psi

I agree that's why I was asking. Figured it was a leak somewhere or the injectors

Well found one leak on the driver side boot in the valley. Fixed it and up to 23 at 3000 rpms on econmy. Still hear more leaks tho. Should the system hold.pressure.or.will it leak out naturally

Use a little bit of dawn with some water in a squirt bottle and pressure up they system and start spraying connections. Also spray the end caps on the intercooler. Then check your up pipes for soot

The up pipes leaking will cause pressure loss

Boost leak test only checks the intake side of the boost system so up pipes aren't checked with boost leak test but they will cause a drop in boost and higher egts. How much really depends on how bad the leak is.
