Default Stops overheating when boosting

Yes
FM FMIC
Water Wetter
Stock radiator and fans

No
Fan are not running parallel
No coolant reroute

Driving to work I start to overheat about 15 minutes into my commuteI start over heating. So after turning around in anger I go full throttle and soon as I am at maximum 5 PSI my temp immediately drops back down.

WTF

I have been overheating since I turbod the car but it seems to only be getting worse.
