Sounds Like The Water Pump Has Gone Bad.

ANS 2 - Water pump seal leaking. Very common and easy to change, but often surrounded by other parts, especially on FWD vehicles. It will steadily get worse till you change it, so don't take too long.

What would cause a supercharger to over boost?

A supercharger is controlled by its pulley size. The smaller the supercharger drive pulley is, the higher in boost pressure you will see. Now if you go with a larger crank pulley, this too will cause you to see more boost. So, in all honestly, the only way to really over boost your supercharger is when you mess around with the pulleys.
