Fred, Lee is experiencing fuel cut-off at high boost pressure so yes this is a genuine overboost problem. Lee, I'm almost out of ideas know, but maybe this is a transient spiking problem. Grasping at straws here, but maybe a clogged cat/exhaust could cause odd spool up. Ed Abbot of Abbot Racing explained to me a condition that can occur when there is high backpressure between exhaust port and turbo and/or a weak spring in the wastegate actuator. The net result was a fast build up of boost pressure then boost pressure dropping back down as the spring in the wastegate actuator worked. I didn't fully understand but maybe a call to Abbot Racing may help, I've found them to be happy to help in the past. To save you looking them up, their phone number is 01255 870636.
