if it's been getting warmer outside lately it can cause your boost to go up a little bit, other than that I don't really know how to diagnose it. The only other thing I could think of is maybe it's sticking closed so you're getting too much boost before the gate opens. Take the wga off and try gently pulling it out/pushing it in to make sure it doesn't feel like it's getting caught up anywhere. Should push in and pull out fairly smoothe so if it's not doing that then it might have a problem

green line on the back of the turbo is probably cracked due to the temperature changes. Same thing happened to me, it slowly rose and rose until it popped off and my wastegate no longer worked.
