DIY Boost Fooler Placement

I was wondering If you have your boost gauge line tapped into the line that runs to the map sensor and then put a regulator behind it is it going to throw off your boost reading.

as long as you take the boost reading before the regulator you will be fine

I was just worried about the excess pressure that the regulator is holding back may make the reading on the gauge go up. Is the DIY regulator the best way to go?

Excess pressure that the regulator holds back? No. The engine itself holds pressure back, thats what boost is. I have a DIY regulator, i'll dig up a pic of my setup.

do the diode style. works MUCH better. its nearly impossible to get the mechanical version set exact. if you set it too low it wont let your MAP see enough pressure so you will lag and lose power. Unless you want to buy a pre-set professionally built one, use the 4.7v zener diode. Google it.

K so if you are sending 28#s of pressure through that line and the regulator is only letting 20#s get to the map sensor would there not be more pressure being pushed to the boost gauge.

We may not be on the same page or I may be 1/2 retarded

That has been proven wrong. I'd have to do an hour of searching to find the website, but it has been proven.

1/2 retarded. Nah, before the regulator, the entire system has the same amount of pressure in it, all the boost fooler does is limit the amount of pressure going to the MAP sensor.

K thanks for the pic. Is your boost gauge line tapped into that same hose?
