Boost issues? Maybe?

So this may be stupid or not but since im new to diesels I wanted to ask everyone.

On my way to work, highway set at 70, i will normally see 2-5 lbs boost while driving, 10 uphill, and nothing down. But the past 2 days, in the morning, it seems to hold steady at 10 normally, 20 uphill, and 5 downhill. The boost downhill is whats weird Same highway both times. Going home yesterday it seemed normal. I will also see if its normal going home today also, but thats in 8 hours. Any ideas would be very much appriciated!

hmm it dont really sounds bad. The only time you'd really want to worry is if your boost got to 31-32... About the boost going down hill im not sure sorry I couldnt help out more.
