    Boost psi/wastegate issue

    How y'all doing? New guy here my 2002 wrx was peeking at 7 psi I ticketed around and finally after bypassing my wastegate I found I can finally reach full boost and it drives fine. I would rather not keep it this way due to I'm sure it can harm the turbo after time but not sure what to start looking at. Any help would be great thank you.

    All the vacuum lines in proper working order? Restrictor pill in place?

    From what I noticed yes. I'm a complete nood to the wrx life and I bought the car knowing of the issue did research on what to check and look at and it seemed like the only thing that was working was how te previous owner had it set up it kind of has me astray bc it's my daily driver. Like I said it's running great you wouldn't even know there is an issue I'm just worried about longer term effects on the car
