Overboosting!

Alright so I just got the new tial 38 mm mv-s external wastegate installed. I have the springs in for 18psi roughly. Everything was connected properly but for some reason I'm over posting between 25-30 psi when before I would hit 20 and taper down to 16psi at WOT at too end.

My question is: what is causing me to overboost? I disconnect the ebcs and went turbo to wastegate directly to make sure it was working right but it's not holding boost it just keeps building. There is a spacer the diagram said to install I'm wondering if that's causing it to not be able to close all the way. Before it wouldn't even boost.
