I'm not familiar with Peake codes, your situation sounded similar to mine but with more detail now it doesn't. New O2 sensors could fix it but don't replace anything based on my assumptions.

There is no way to replace the gasket on the booster while its on the car. I'm not even sure if its repairable at all. On e you get the booster off to look at it, might as well replace it.
