1997 7.3 powerstroke stock,no boost

Hey Guys I have a 1997 7.3 powerstroke with no boost pressure on my gauge. Truck in bone stock except for air intake and 4 inch downpipe. Fuel filter is new. Truck starts,ides perfect.No smoke. I realize the 7.3 is a low boost engine,but this is NO boost. Im going to rebuild the turbo,and put a 1.0 housing on it. Before I do that,is there any other problems related to no boost pressure.---Thanks

Is your gauge hooked up correctly where did you tap the boost gauge line in at?

That would be where you might hook up the pyrometer, the boost gauge should tie into the map sensor line.

1997 F250, 4" exhaust, TS performance chip, DIY intake, future mods include turbo, injectors, hpop.
