Unhappy Please Help! Boost Problem!

so i was driving this weekend and started noticing something. 1st gear runs great but second, third, fourth, and fifth are not so good. wen i hit boost in theses gears, it flucuates like crazy! the boost gauge reads 7 then jumps to 15 then back down to 7 then back up! all gears but first! i can feel it in the car! the exhaust will do. vrrrrrrOOOOOOOMMMMM vrrrrOOOOOMMMMM the capital letters emphasize the car getting louder! haha. i cant figure out wut the hell it is! no leaks in any hoses as far as i can see! wut else could it be? anyone else ever had this problem? please help!

MODS include:

3" Helix TBE, up pipe, tgv delete, fuel pump, k&n drop in, silencer delete.

i would but i work the same hours as him and im not too close. i had this problem about a month ago and chris from forced air replaced my stock boost controller with a different stock boost controller which seemed to fix the problem and now it is back! so it only fixed it temporarily i guess. so confused!
