Egr cooler delete ( no boost pressure )

I deleted the Egr and both coolers and now my H&S isn't showing any boost pressure, the kit I bought had no instructions so I had to just wing it. Anyone run into this before.

It just says 0 or what exactly does it say? What does your stock guage do?

Hahaha that sounded like one of them all state mayhem commercials but for diesel nerds like us. When mayhem is the GPS and hasn't been updated so he just has to WING it and tells him to turn down the one way street. Haha sorry if you didn't think it was as funny as I did but here is the commercial if you don't know what I'm talking about. Lol

Did you make sure to clamp all your hoses back all the way and make sure the exhaust block was on tight? I can't think of anything else that would do it besides leaks unless your MM is acting up. Is the stock gauge showing boost?

It's shows only about 2-3 psi if you rev the engine up , I was wondering if the pressure sensor should moved to a different pipe now that the flow pattern is changed.

2-3 psi under load? You can't really build boost just revving the engine in your driveway (unless you put it in drive and powerbrake it... not recommended).

Is it like that when you drive it?

Everything should work as normal as far as boost is concerned with an EGR delete.
