Pull the intake tube off and check for play in the impellar shaft. If the turbo is going, don't beat on it or you may start seeing some of the pieces going into the motor and taking it out.

Depending on what setting I have my smarty on I get between 35- 43 psi. Its seems with more timming I get more boost. I guess since you are adding more fuel the egt's come up more quickly, (hince more heat more boost).

The boots swell up under boost psi, when it swells up it rubs on the inner fender in causes a hole, its a common problem.
