Why wouldnt the truck make boost at idle? Anytime you rev the engine it should make some boost...

Im pretty sure a 7.3 wont. A 6.0 or 6.4 might. I just know mine doesnt. Maybe 2 psi but 10-15 psi is definitly new to me. Maybe the OP just has a banging turbo

When I put my boost gauge in I revved up to see it move. It didn't move until about 2500 RPM and it was only 1 or 2 PSI.
