Default making full boost?

okay so ive had my 03 gt for a couple weeks now and it seems that if i use say half pedal i can hear the turbo and it pulls nicely but if i mash the pedal it seems slower. How do i know if my wastegate and or turbo are working as they should? Thanks

I think they are all like that. This car requires some foot control to get the most power out of it.

Get a boost guage, check for boost leaks. Tune up? Do you know how it was maintained?

Going to get the boost guage soon. Plugs and wires were done 10k ago along with the timing belt, water pump, belts, hoses. This was my dads car since new. I did the air box modification and put the K&N in and it seems much more responsive.
