I bet if you run a obd2 scanner you'll find you had overboost condition. Check your clamps and vacuum lines. This can also happen due to fuel cutoff and bad solenoid (either BOV or wastegate)

Boost gauges are not always accurate/calibrated so always use a calibrated gauge or better yet use obd2 readings for boost.

Where is the boost source for the gauge coming from?

You will not get a CEL if you have a leak unless bad enough to cause ~4 psi leak.
