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!!!
