2006 wrx

Default 06 wrx stage 2 not holding boost

just took my wrx to stage 2 a couple weeks ago (cobb ap) and lately it seems like when i take off hard and go through the gears the boost will start off at like 15 lbs and slowly fall off as low as like 10 lbs by the end of the gear. but the weird thing is, this wont happen if i am in say 3rd or 4th gear and floor it-the boost will seem to hold. is this normal or is there some sort of problem? any input will be helpful.

yeah the turbo can't hold full boost to redline....it can't flow enough air.

Totally normal, should fade to about 9-11 psi in all gears by redline.

Without a series of accesstuner logs it's hard to say if there's anything going on, but the boost should fall off up top.

Target Stg II is 15psi or so, tapering to 9-11psi @ redline.

Sounds pretty Healthy to me, does it pull strong?

Also, when you start your pull in 3rd gear does it hold 15lb all the way to redline? Or, does it hit target boost around 3-4k then tapper off around redline still?
