What makes you so sure your boost controller is fine? The first thing I would try is disconnecting the boost controller and running with the stock boost control. If the problem persists, then remove your boost controller completely and take the car to the dealer for service.

Doubt it's a problem with your wastegate. Probably your wastegate actuator isn't getting the signal it needs, meaning either your boost controller is misadjusted or you have a leak in the boost control system.
