There's no wastegate on the 94.5-97's, but 16 PSI should be about right if you're not running a chip. You making only 10 indeed sounds like you dusted the turbo, and the vanes looking chipped up confirms. You have a pretty wide range of options for replacements, from having your stocker rebuilt to buying a modded one. After you get it all back together I'd look long and hard at that K&N, figure out exactly how dust got through. You might consider switching to a paper filter.
As a side note, my 96 as descibed in my sig will push about 23 PSI with the Edge set on extreme.
