No boost sometimes - Our Station Truck

Super odd. The 6.0 at the fire hall sometimes has no boost until 3k rpm. Some times its fine, other times there is no boost until 3k rpm. When it is not building boost, it takes a while to get up and move. NO black smoke, no running odd (besides no power from no boost) runs smooth.

Any ideas? I was thinking it might need reflashed? If it was a turbo, I would assume we would see black smoke? Also somtimes it works just fine!

One more thing... where my truck has a MAF sensor, this doenst. Look at the blank plug for the MAF (has wired but plug is blaned out). Its an 05 with 20,000 miles. (pick of plug attached)
