1.5bar Exh Man?

Did anything come of the exhaust manifold that creates 1.5 bar?  I saw
a couple of posts, but no apparent resolution.

I'm thinking that the excessive boost (is that possible? :) is actually 
caused by some malfunction of the wastegate.  Are you sure that you 
plumbed the manifold pressure line that controls the wastegate correctly?  
Is the wastegate compatible with the new manifold?  Was the corrugated 
tube that bypasses the turbo damaged or otherwise restricted?

As long as the ECU is still there to protect the engine it is not too
likely to become much more than an annoyance, but you probably should 
look into the situation to make sure that everything is working properly.
