BOOST question

I am noticing that I see less boost when at WOT then I do when I am just 3/4 throttle. I also notice while towing my egts are fine while I am seeing 25-27 psi but as soon as it shifts down I only get to around 22psi and the egts climb. if anyone knows what may cause this problem or maybe its standard (hope not) Thanks

same boost issue here. tunes or no tunes. i see it drop considerably in the high rpms and it builds like a mofo in lock up... if it aint normal im going to be pissed! i also know that less boost means less power (obviously) and i like power. alot. hopefully someone will chime in with whats up!
