boost drop off at WOT?

so i went out for my bi-weekly "cane on my truck for an hour" drive. and i noticed that at WOT on the flat at around 2800-3000 rpm, my boost starts to drop off from 25 plus to 15ish. is this normal? and on a side note, when i really get on it my scangauge reads boost up to 25, then throws out a negative number i was seeing -10 to -12? wtf is up with that? any help or info is appreciated.

Doug

Try tightening all you clamps. I would recomendd taking all your boobs off and cleaning them and then tighten them down really good.

I have seen the Scangauge go into negative numbers on boost, but it was only over 25psi of boost. Not sure if the X-gauge isnt right for the truck or what.

As far as the loss of boost could be as simple as a boot(boob) or maybe an intercooler tank leaking under high boost numbers.

I have noticed that mine will drop off sometimes as well, but no noticeable decrease in power. It's more evident when I tow my 5th wheel all loaded up, but that could be because I'm running my tow tune. I just figured that the PCM was determining that the VGT didn't need to be running that much boost, opened the vanes a bit and dumped off some boost. Like I said, I didn't notice a decrease in power when it happens.
