i hooked a vacuum line straight from the compressor to the wastegate to bypass the solenoid. took it for a drive and it only went to about 9 pounds. does thin mean that my wastegate is bad.

Sounds about right, assuming it has a non-adjustable actuator rod--or, if it's an adjustable unit, there should be about an 1/8 inch of tension on the actuator rod when it is disconnected from the wastegate arm (for that boost level).
