You need to get your timing in line or you will be destroying your engine in no time.
Everything gets effected by boost increase.....if you up the boost you may have to retard timing to prevent detonation. Of course power will drop accordingly but the overall gain should be positive.
Have the dyno guy check your timing with a light. This should be easy to do during a pull to see how much boost retard your getting with your dizzy....perhaps this is not hooked up or working?
