Default Blown intake gaskets, overboost?

Hey everyone,
I'm working on an 05 GT Turbo. It was brought to me running rough and with 2 codes, P0325 (knock sensor) & P0340 (cam sensor). However when I opened the hood the problem was clear, 2 of the rubber gaskets between the plastic upper and lower intake gaskets had been blown out. Easy enough fix and the car ran fine but still had the codes as the kid didn't have the money to buy new sensors yet. My recommendation was get the sensors and a crank sensor also as you have to turn the car over for about 10-15 seconds before it starts.
After a week he calls me and says the problem is back. I haven't looked at the car yet but he sent me a pic and this time it blew them all out! Even pulled the spacers right through the manifold!
Any one experience this and what could it be? I'm thinking stuck wastegate?
Any and all replies appreciated.
