not driven in 10yrs - wastegate's not opening?

OB cutoff kicks in @ 1.2bar IIRC

when I bought my car I went through exactly this, it wasn't driven often (tho not like yours in 10yrs) and the WG was frozen solid, had to put another on there

either that, or your EBC is programmed too high

it's likely overboost related, not tune up or anything else - 5k is where you'd hit OB in 1 & 2, and 3500 is where you'd hit it in 3rd so it correlates pretty tellingly IMO

good luck
