ebpv unplugged-idle still kicked up/boost gauge inop/trans temp gauge foggy

Alright- put my gauges in this weekend. So i unplugged the plug on the turbo pedestal. Had the little metal clip on it. Well started the truck up and pulled it out of the gauge to let it run and check the gauges- idle kicked up.

So should it not kick up if it is unplugged?

Boost gauge- havent taken it out on the street but just in the driveway i hit the gas and it didnt move. I do have an overboost annihilator hooked up(no chip at the moment). That is where i tied my t for my gauge into.

Also my trans temp gauge got foggy when i pulled it out?


Any ideas on all of this would be appreciated.

Thanks
Mike

on your air box there is a little grey connector under the filter, unplug it, the high idle will kick off

Go for a drive boost gauge should work, most the time unless the engines loaded up it wont read anything..

why unplug the high idle? It will burn the fuel better if you leave it idling?
I unplugged the ebpv too.. But why dont you like the idle? Just curious?

Thumbs up

Foggy trans temp gauge is normal and it does this on most trans temp gauges. It clears up after you drive and warm the truck up a bit. Totally normal and I'm guessing the reason it does this is because of the heat transfer but for whatever reason it's normal.

I dont have a picture but looking at the motor, it is the plug at the bottom of the turbo pedestal. You can pull it off with everything installed just have to reach under the spider or to the side of it. I found it easier underneath. It has a clip that you have to pull toward you and the plug should come off. I did mine this weekend. It might be hard to take a picture unless you have the spider off.

no worries and I think your right. Come to think of it mine was almost warm when I unplugged mine. I hope so anyway because today it felt like something opened up when I was driving. truck rpm went up a hair and it got a bit louder. It felt like someone kicked me in the back side. I hope that is what it bc everything looks fine.
