Triple gauge pod installed... QUESTIONS

I did the install today. First, my PYROMETER isn't working at all. I know it's got power because it's tied to the same switched power as the trans temp gauge.

BOOST was a disappointment... I'm maxing around 15-16psi. Is that normal for a stocker??? I could be wrong, but it seems to have lost some pep but I don't have any leaks on either end of the boost gauge line. Observations were that at 65 mph she's showing around 2 1/2 psi, 70 mph it runs around 5 psi or so depending on flat, up, or downhill. From dead stop, for around 1/3 throttle, it was running around 7-10 psi.

TRANS TEMP seems to be normal. On a half hour ride home, it runs about 150 degrees once fully warmed up.

Tomorrow, I'm going to call Diesel Manor on the Pyrometer, but do the boost and trans temp sound normal to everyone?

Temps sound good to me. Where did you tap in for pryo. Needs to be installed before the turbo

Exactly where the direction said to... on the exhaust manifold. Thanks for the input on the boost everyone. Looks like I may need a tuner to increase boost!

More boost more power will only get you so far. The stock turbo will only flow around 500cfm no matter how much pressure you push. Do all you can to get more air and fuel in and out of the engine. That with higher boost should work well.
