What kind of exhaust? If wastegate has straight dump pipe and turbocharger restrictive damper, there will be some difference in boost produced.

Other from that, tapering boost is quite common for simple wastegate-regulated circuit w/o boost controller. It's more pronounced on turbochargers with internal wastegate though. Only way to keep boost at constant level is by fitting EBC or Dawe's device.

On the other hand, tapering boost isn't such a bad thing as it prevents turbo from overspining. VE is usually best around mid-range and air mass flow is moderate. As engine climbs up the revs VE starts to decrease and mass flows increase which "chokes" the engine and decreases the boost.
Thank you for your time,
