If you want perfect boost in 5th you may have to give up a little spool in the lower gears.
I have heard the above statement of not going WOT in 5th gear many times.....but I would think that the tuner could fix this and lower the boost. My car was doing this as well on the td04 stg 2 tune and I have a GS I had him lower the boost by a few psi and its gone. HOWEVER, I dont go wot in 5th, if im on the highway and wanna get moving.... I downshift and rev match into 4th and get on it.......thats just me though.
