Unhappy NEED HELP, GIANT LOSS OF BOOST

okay, i put one of the wicked wheels in today, before the wheel i was pushing 34 lbs of boost, now i can barley push 24 lbs of boost, i got told i shouldnt lose boost like that, i have went over it twice now and cant figure it out, the only thing i can think of is that while it was off i had to twist and turnt the wasgate can by the compressor housing to get it off so would that do this and if so what do i do to correct it

Check for boost leaks and shaft play. At 34 psi that stock turbo didnt have long to live the way it is

im going to play with the wastgate, and there aint any shaft play at all, and i have checked my gauge tubing, and all the gaskets around the turbo and cant find a single leak, i kinda assumed i would lose a pound or two possibly but not ten

How about your intercooler boots? Did you check those?

wastegate doesnt do anything to help or hurt, and yes i did check all the intercooler boots and i checked the spider boots too, is there anything else im overlooking possibly that would make the boost pressure drop 10lbs.
