AEM boost controller? Or boost gauge? If it's just a gauge, then this is a part of your tune. It sounds like maybe someone adjusted the wastegate actuator or put a very aggressive tune on (which is better news than Manual Boost Controller).
As far as coolant goes,
1). Let the car completely cool down
2). Open radiator cap
3). Fill the UPPER coolant resevoir (by turbo) until coolant fills it (or more likely overflows the radiator).
4). Stick a spill proof funnel into the radiator hole and fill it about half way with coolant (obviously gotta have one that presses up around the hole and seals it fairly well).
5). Start car, turn on heater inside car to max
6). Keep squeezing the upper radiator hose to "Burp" the system. (Air bubbles will come up into the funnel and it will suck coolant).
7). As coolant level in funnel goes down, add more
Do this for a while. You will feel pressure build up in the hose and fans will kick in. At one point the thermostat will open and it will probably suck more coolant. By while I mean as long as 15-20 minutes.
Keep your fingers/hands away from fans.
When it does not want to suck any more coolant, and you cannot burp any more bubbles remove funnel (yes some coolant will spill) and close the radiator cap (make sure to do it right, it closes in two steps, so it will feel like it tightened up, and then you can press it down and turn another half turn or so).
Finally fill upper resevoir all the way and fill overflow to the max line!
