boost limit/fuel cut question

Hi folks, I'm new to the site and have a quick question. I bought a my98 turbo 2000 very cheap 6 months ago when I bought the car it had a manual boost controller and was spiking dangerously and hitting fuel cut at 14psi. I removed the bleed valve thingy and discovered there was no restrictor pill in so fitted a 1.1mm pill now the car boosts to 17psi with no sign of any fuel cut? does this sound right? It is fairly standard, unequal length headers decat up and down pipes 2.5" system uprated tmic walbro fuel pump hks highflow filter hks bov.
the reason I ask is that I know the fuel cut comes in at just over 1 bar but now the boost control solenoid is plumbed in it doesent seem to come in.

cheers in advance
Gav

standard ecu, can't remember the number on it. S8 kind of rings a bell, if that sounds right can't be 100% though
