I had same sort of problem with my greddy, took ages to get it right, it still drops off at high revs, if your shore its installed right/ no leaks it's a case of seat time and tweaks

Gain is pretty much what determines how fast your turbo builds up boost. Set it too high and it you will overboost higher up the rev range.

Best thing to do is set your target boost to what you want, say its 0.8bar leave the gain at 0

Once you have the boost running at 0.8bar, you can start messing with the gain to get it to come in quicker.

Youl then need to take the car for a run in a reasonably high load gear (3rd gear is pretty good for this to get a good idea from) and take the car from 4k to say 6k rpm, keep checking that you don't go over your 0.8bar limit, if it starts to go over 0.8bar youl need to lower the gain setting as your experiencing overboost.

hope that makes a bit of sense mate, its the easiest way I could think to explain it
