Wagon fluctuating

hi all new to the forum but not the subaru scene was on scoobynet for a bit

Need some ideas as I'm all out Im suffering from boost fluctuation hitting 1bar then losing pressure to 0.5 (WG pressure)then 1 bar then 0.5 so on through to the red line

Car is a my00 wrx wagon all standard except back box and baileys dv (came with car) gaskets fine as is the spring although I'm currently sourcing an oem part

Changed plugs gapped correctly

Ran hosing from turbo outlet straight to actuator nipple ran 0.5 and held steady so that seems strong

Cleaned BCS and pipe work still no change then switched out for another oem unit still no change

Changed fuel filter

Removed IC and checked hosing all seems fine can't find no leaks

Always ran on v power

Cleaned maf sensor (no induction kit) to no avail,now I know the maf's are temperamental on this year when I disconnect it the car stalls as it should,now I'm wondering can a faulty MAF cause these symptoms?

I know these should be boosting to 0.9 bar as it's the wagon gf8 and have done since the 95 wagon (I think) so I'm getting overboost or spikes from somewhere which the ecu could be tarding the timing and dropping it but surely it wouldn't drop it to WG pressure?

Anyone got an idea then don't be shy I'm puzzled thank you everyone in advance
