This sounds rediculus.

I know how absurd this sounds, but where have you all routed the tube for the boost gauge through the firewall? I am getting my gauges in finally and of all of the write ups and step by step pictures shows that I have seen do not show this. If i need to drill a hole then I would like to be sure of the location so I don't hit something vital.

Any help would be great.

Fuel Pressure Regulator shim, it is basicly increasing the spring pressure in the regulator which increases the feed pressure to the hpop. or atleast that is what my understanding is.

FPR Shim Link.

ok out comes the drill... good thing I have grommets somewhere around here.

as far as turning up the fuel pump, from what I understand on the PSD's you need to either rebuild the pump to a 17* or replace with a Super duty 17* hpop. I have not gotten there yet so I don't know.

You're talking about two completely different systems.

I would assume by saying fuel pump you're talking about the fuel system. The 17* pump you're talking about would be the high pressure oil system.
