Your FMIC is not doing the job it should be doing. Check for low ambient airflow through the coils.

You have an N54 and not a N55 correct? OEM N54 usually can maintain about 15 psi at high RPM so I do not know why your boost is falling off so much at high RPM.
It is unreasonable to expect the OEM...

If your still running OEM turbo's that is why your not hitting target.

You also gained 53 degrees IAT on that run. I would consider using meth to limit the IAT rise.

You do not regain traction until >5k rpm. I would lower the boost setpoint below this rpm until you maintain traction. You also need to raise the FF to help up top. I would raise FF from 20 to 40 and...

It could have been the extra E85. Too much E85 will lead to low fuel pressure and sequential cylinder shutoff with all kinds of temporary problems following the initial event.

Try to catch it in log when the ses light is activated. If your running 5 psi boost under light load then in dash items 11 or 12 is probably too high.
