90% sure I have subluxed peroneal. 6 months since injury and pops with every movement. Original MRI didn't show issues with it. Will new MRI show it?

In brief: Unlikely

Subluxating peroneal tendons is a dynamic problem that often requires a provocative movement of the ankle to cause the subluxation to occur. An MRI, on the other hand, is most often done as a static image without any motion to provide clarity to the images, so the dynamic problem is not visualized.
A thorough exam or dynamic ultrasound can often cinch the diagnosis
