sounds like a crappy tune or something is messed up from a crappy install/tune... never know but I would get it tunned asap.... you never know what you are buying.

its poorly tuned and posibbly running really lean up top thats why it levels off at the top. if it is tuned right it will pull harder at the top because thats where superchargers make peak boost is right at redline/near redline.

Considering his name is kiwistang I'd have to guess NZ is New Zealand.

you may have to get a chip tunned here via justin or whom ever you deem good and get it sent to you. Then you can get a dyno tune with wideband and it can be tweeked. If you are in NZ cant just drive over here....
