Turbo 2011 powerstroke

My boost gauge goes up down while cruising highway speed in my 2011 powerstroke. Is that normal?

By how much, it'll move with how much the engine is working to maintain speed.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Driving 65mph on a flat highway on cruise control it jumps up and down almost 20psi. It only does it sometimes.

20 psi?? I'm kinda green on diesel performance, but that sounds kinda high, are you sure it's not 20%?

It's an '11, still under warranty? Dealer might be able to tell you.
