MAP line in "Hot Side" of spyder??

I will be installing the IC in my truck and have heard of moving the MAP line & boost gauge to the hot side of the spyder, MAP to help with the spool delay and the gauge to get a more accurate reading. Can anyone give me insight if this is correct???

Thanks

You got that backwards, hypermax calls for map in hot side, boost in cold side.

Mine was the same way, just as it would be on a stock SD with intercooler.

Deffinately looking at the hypermax instructions right now and it says, "re route map sensor line to pre drilled hole it hot side intercooler pipe."

Upon referring to the instructions, you are correct. But why??? Is there an advantage/disadvantage? The pressure drop through the intercooler should be negligible in real-world driving situations.

Yea, i dont know. I was reading up that there is a 1-2 psi difference and putting it in the hot side reduces lag and having the boost gauge closer the the motor will give you a better idea of what your motor is actually getting for boost. I just figured i would do what hypermax says, they designed the kit, they should know best, i really dont think it would make to much difference either way though.
