Symptoms to blown head gaskets

I think im having head gasket problems but im not sure. Im not losing any coolant. Truck isnt acting any different than it usually does except when I really get on it with a race tune it doesnt feel like all the powers there and I could possibly be loosing compression. Thanks in advance for the help.

If you were "loosing compression" under a hard load with high cylinder pressures like that, you would know it.

Watch your boost gauge next time it does it. See how far it pegs which might demonstrate that you're turbo is sticking while under that high of a boost demand which is why it feels like it's falling in it's face.

To check, it should be obvious, but run it stock and see if it does the same thing. It may, sometimes, but not near to the same extent.
