An easy way to check the overboost switch is with the car idling, just pull the wire off the switch. You will know instantly if all the wiring is correct and the switch is hooked up.

You should have hit the overboost very quickly with the wastegate not hooked up at all. I had a wastegate line issue, and mine would kick in frequently while I was troubleshooting it.

I had intermittent problems with mine, the engine compartment wiring harness is completely different to make the Electromotive crank fired ingnition work, and the harness was actually a little short and everyonce in a while would move just enough to kick in the overboost.

I don't know why I do the hillbilly things I do.
