You just "over-boosted"; I believe that is the correct term. This has happened to me three times now. It is very common with stage 2, when accelerating hard in 4th and 5th gear. I don't know if it is as common with stage 1, maybe someone else can elaborate. However, you should be fine just clearing the code, and not worrying about it. Is it very cold where you live, cause that could cause this as well? You might need a new waste gate solenoid, but from my experience it is nothing to worry about.

Also, if you want to make this problem go away for good, you need a good aftermarket boost controller. But that also requires a tune.

You can also probably avoid this problem by downshifting into the powerband rather than flooring it at 2400rpms in 5th gear.
