Map Sensor Port

I just finished installing a wicked wheel and some other mods on my truck, and when I took it out for a drive, the map sensor port popped out of the spider when I started making boost.

It looks like it is pretty loose and is suppose to be a press fit? Anyone else have this happen? Any easy mod that can be done with the spider in the truck?

It looks as though the hole is egged and I can just remove the spider, drill & tap, and install a threaded nipple.

Been searching this issue and came up short, lots of other map problems. I did read about with the 94-97 7.3's moving their map sensor port to the hot side after installing an IC. Any benefit to doing this with the 99-03 7.3's? My edge chip plugs into the map sensor so I don't know if moving the sensor port will cause a problem.

Thanks for the advise and help!!!

put a hose clamp on it. There should've been a "press clamp" to begin with.

There is a hose clamp on it. The nipple itself physically popped out of the spider. The hose was still attached to the nipple.

Yesh, this is the next step. I am curious if running the map to the hot side would have an upside/downside.

Thanks!

The only benifit is a bit quicker boost reading, leading to a bit quicker fueling. Mine has been on the hot side for years. No issues.
