Turbo temps

I'm having difficulty with my turbo waste gate, which is stuck open, and attempting to free it up. Naturally, I will now remain concerned that it freezes up again. I can confirm that it moves before casting off each time, but that is a bit of a pain. I'm not even sure you can actuate it against the vacuum and may need to pull the control arm off to move the crank. The manual says to check it every so often, but not at each departure.

Is there a simple aftermarket turbo temp alarm or monitor that can be installed? While underway, I'm not sure I would have any way of knowing that it is stuck again. If stuck closed next time, it could be much worse and over boost the motor.
