might check your backpressure valve. Sounds like my issues before I replaced the tube and sensore 2 years ago, then this spring the valve itself started to stick so I just deleted it. Best thing I ever did.

What is the boost level that stays the same?

I would guess the ebpv also unless the air filter is plugged up.

Any smoke?

How are you running 30 lbs of boost? You would need a turbo and bigger injectors.

And, i really hope you aren't seeing 30 lbs while driving at 55 no load!!!
This would indicate a major problem.

Ok, in this statement, are you saying that the top boost limit is still the same as before you had this problem?

First thing i would do is try and verify the temp reading with another gauge.

800 seems hot for a 55 mph cruise and 4-5 psi.

How bout some more details about your truck.
lift, tire size, what is stock or not stock, auto/manual?

This might give us a little more understanding. Also what gauge are you using?

Do you have a chip or anything?

I always thought a stock turbo wasn't gonna give you 30 psi regardless of the tuner.

We need to know quite a bit more about your truck man.
