Won't boost over 7 psi

Hi Guys, I have a 97 WRX which will not boost over 7 psi. After buying the car last year I noticed the boost was spiking dangerously to 20 psi, so I took the car the car to RB motorsport.

Rod @ RB said that someone had been tinkering with the det sensor and that he'd fixed the spiking, but it was now in a safe mode running only 7 psi rather than 15psi. He said to reset the ECU which I have done with no error messages showing. So does anyone know why the car is still only running 7 psi and has not returned to full boost? how can I fix it? (please note Rod didn't have time to fix the boost issue due to my time constraints)
