Not really. The higher the bar, the higher the boost pressure and the more hp the engine can deliver (with proper fueling). How quickly the turbo reaches maximum boost, and how well it can keep up with engine demand and not begin to lose boost is dependent upon the type of turbo and how welll it is matched to your engine build.
Properly functioning, your turbo will produce maximum boost and hold it throughout most of the useable rpm range of the engine.
