boost problem, need help.

i have a 2000 f250 superduty. I have the edge system that shows the boost and other stuff. I was driving back to mississippi from florida this past weekend while towing a car. About halfway to mississippi i noticed that my boost went from normal to half of what it usually is. I did notice a loss of power, but was still able to make it back home, after stressing the whole way back about what is going on. I disconnected the wastegate to see if that did anything and it went up a little but not what is should have since i did it before and got a crazy amount of boost when i first got the truck. Can someone please help me out. I don't want to get stranded on my trips like my cps did before. Any help would be great.

Yeah, first place I'd look would be clamps on the cac tubes. Also look at the clamps where the tubes bolt to the heads, AIH, MAP sensor, and the cac rubbers themselves. Something may have come loose or blown off or got a slice in it, etc...

boost problem

The check engine light did not come on. Could there still be codes? I will check the intercooler hoses and clamps today. Also can i rent a code reader from like o'reilly's or advance auto to read the codes for the SDf250. I know alot will only read gas vehicles.Thanks

boost problem

ok. i checked all intercooler hoses and clamps. good. tried to see if any codes. none. still runs decent, no more black smoke than before. just alot lower boost and somewhat sluggish. With this edge system i put on it it used to run like a drag car, well maybe a little slower, but definatley a loss of power. what now. at cruising at about 65 i may be running like 1.8lbs and when i get on it i have only seen it go up to about 7.5lbs & with the vacuum line off only around 10lbs. what the hell. I don't have much more hair left. Help !!!!!!
