Default 1992 SSEi will not produce boost

Ok so when i start to take off, my boost gauge will peg out and car will go like it is supposed to but all of a sudden it just stops, the engine jumps and u have to let your foot off the gas and slowly re apply and then it goes fine until you are in any kind of boost requiring situation. Uphills or passing is a bitch, please help guys

Check Engine light on at all? Hooked a scanner up to the car? Pulling any codes?

Check of the boost % drops. Then we would know if the PCM is dumping for some reason or the BCS is bad.

My scantool has a parameter for Boost %. It reads 100% at all times, unless the PCM wants to dump, then it will be lower.

Produces 10 PSI according to my gauge and it is perfectly running. so is it an intermittent problem? it only did it after the car was warmed up yesterday, i drove it to warmup temperature today and nothing, i tried everything to recreate it and couldnt, please advise
