Default awakening the beast

Hey all
I just took my tta out after a five year hybernation (started every other month or so) anyway
I have an adjustment knob for the boost pressure on my dash. When i floor it i can get over the twelve psi mark. I used to peg the needle when i used to race it. SO what would cause it to not adjust. The car is dfi controlled so its not a chip.

Cracked or leaking hose?

Sticky/rusted wastegate?

Shaft play in the turbo?

Just picked it Monday ... put a K&N filter on it, hooked up HPTuners and tweaked some of the torque management stuff.

Plan to "play" more ...

Also pics of the Grand National (mandatory Buick content ) and the GTO...
