Seems like the detonation that accompanied overboost was more likely the cause of your busted rings, but in any event, the sudden lean condition caused by loss of fuel pressure (overboost cutoff) could do just as much engine damage. The real solution is to carefully maintain your wastegate diaphragm and control pressure line.

In any event, I hope your car is back on the road!
