Another high boost

I read the other thread but I am not running H&S or Spartan tunes and I am in San Diego so no cold weather like the other guys, so I thought a different thread would make sense.

I didn't drive my truck for a week or so (I was cruising around with my big block 454ss!). On my way to work, I watched the boost go to 30-40 under 25% throttle and at 2000-2500 rpms. I don't feel like there is a power loss, but I am used to the big block with no turbo. It may just be that I haven't driven this truck, but that seems high. I checked the boots and they are connected and I couldn't feel any holes or suction with my fingers.

Is this normal or is something going on?

I still would remove and clean your map and ebp sensors. It doesnt have to be cold for those to cause problems.

Ok. I knew my 6.0 inside and out but the 6.4 is new to me.

Is the map sensor on the air intake?

Where is the ebp sensor?

How do I clean?
