dose the check engine light come on, the boost fooler should have fixed that problem if it is working properly.
or it could also be a wastgate problem or just a boost leak.

Is he using the Edge for his gauges? I would tell you his boost fooler is only letting 17.5#'s thru and because the Edge use's the MAP sensor for its Boost reading thats why it stops there...

Should, What kind of boost fooler is it? An electric one (sounds like it is) or a blow off/regulator type?

The problem is without somekind of device on the MAP line, anything over 20-23#'s will set a SES light and the truck will defuel to lower the boost...
