Another question......manifold pressure isn't the same as boost is it? The solus scanner (Snap-On) doesn't read actual boost.

Should be the same. The MAP sensor is the Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor. So boost.

Idle the truck. The MAP reading at idle will be your baseline. Anything over that is positive pressure IE: boost. So, you won't get the same reading from truck to truck.

Lots of things will make this different- truck, altitude, tune, how much the foot weighs, how much the truck weighs, pretty much everything.

I am getting up to 27 psi under acceleration from the MAP psi reading and up to 14psi on the mangaugeprs reading under acceleration if MAP is boost should it read 11-14 at idle? Thanks, Fred

11-14 at idle yes, depending on your elevation. The higher you are from sea level, the lower the base line will be. So, you know your base line, you know your peak. Subtract base from peak and you have net boost.

and 16lbs is about all you will see from a stock truck. Please fill out your signature so we know what all has been done to your truck.
