I would rip out the boost adjustment device and make sure the wastegate is functioning correctly by itself. Get your car back to stock .8 bar boost, then go from there if you want to add boost control back into the equation. Also, it sounds as though the previous owner had disconnected the overboost sensor - otherwise your car should/would have shut down well before reaching 1.6 bar boost. Of course, there's always the possibility that your boost gauge is reading higher than actual.

Lots of unknowns to sort out, but that's half the fun!
