The 89XR7 5speed is running great.....except!!!

If I really get on the car in 1st and go to shift into 2nd, I lose all my boost because of the shift(which I understand that) with the car now in 2nd I mash the gas I get 2-3psi....ie slow car. If I immeditately get off the gas then back on the gas (WOT) I get full boost.

I did some searching, I think it maybe the boost bypass valve...any thoughts.
Im going drag racing tomorrow and I would like full boost the normal way.

Thanks

Might be the bypass valve linkage sticking, it's located behind the supercharger top.
