How bad is it for the turbo, or engine, for boost to quickly oscillate between 2 psi below and 2 psi above target boost level at WOT?
Reason I ask is because when I adjust my wastegate arm to the point where the boost stays steady at WOT in all gears, I notice my turbo builds boost alot slower. But when I shorten my wastegate arm (about 1 to 2 turns) the turbo builds boost alot faster but oscillates as described above in 4th and 5th gear at WOT (more severe in 5th). Even shorting the arm even 1/2 turn and I see slight oscillation in 5th at WOT.
I'm trying to find the "sweet spot" for the wastegate arm, I like the "power" of the car when I have the wastegate arm shorter but don't want to damage anything with the boost oscillating. Please shed some light on what i can do. Thanks in advance

Is it over boosting or oscillating up to target boost?If it's overboosting you should change the arm back the way it was untill you get around to tunning it.Once it gets colder it will become more of a problem depending on what your max injector duty cycle is now.If you get a nasty boost spike you might not have the fuel to match the PSI and you could be pretty lean durring the spike.Also the XPT maps are not scaled to a very high load.There are other things you can do to get better spooling tuning wise besides just turning the wastegate arm since you have the GM BCS. Lot of info on Enginuity about tuning the GM BCS.If you are just oscillating up to target boost it won't hurt anything but it's just annoying.
i am having a problem with the xpt stage 2 gm bcs map on my 04 wrx. i am overboosting in 4th gear, about 20-22 psi, but 1-3 are at or under target, i have adjusted the wastegate arm without much for results, was wondering if i need some touch ups on the tuning side
