another silly question

My 51 plate WRX has some induction kit fitted, Noticed on a spirited run this morning that she pulls like a train but once it gets to 3 figures it seems to struggle a little bit! Could this be due to the induction kit? Should I try and get a standard intake and upgrade panel filter??

Could this cause the problem above or does it need remapping??

that'll be because you've reached your maximum boost pressure and it's starting to tail off...
