I guess when you say spool, you mean that you are making no power and the boost gauge is showing no boost? Additionally, the car should feel terribly underpowered after 4000 RPM. There are aluminum and Stainless components to the wastegate, and they are dangling in a relative breeze, so it may take them longer to warm up, and the Aluminum and SS will expand at a different rate. Usually Wastegates will stick shut and not stick open. If it was working fine when you parked it, how would it mysteriously open itself and stick open, which would be under spring pressure. I don't know, just seems strange.
