boost problem

i have an 02 wrx with a tbe, cobb intake, and very recently i removed my mbc in favor of the stock setup, i noticed when i installed the stock hose setup that my car would hesitate around .05 bar for about a half second then contiue to hit target boost. so being an idiot a decided to play with the wastegate arm a little bit so i popped off the c clip and the arm, i rotated the arm clockwise maybe an 8th of a turn, and then moved whatever that piece is on turbo housing in order to reattach the arm, and now my car will spike to 1.5 bar and then drop back down to waste gate pressure in 3rd and 4th gear and spike in 5th gear, so i know its somthing to do with the wastegate. please help!!!!!!!!!!

Turn it back to where it was, make sure the nut and c clip are secure, then reset the ECU by disconnecting the negative battery cable and depressing the brakes.
