NEED MORE BOOST!!!!!

Need some help here. Can't seem to get over 8psi of boost reading on gauge. Got aftermarket intake, exhaust and map fooler. Sent gauge back and manufacturer said it was fine, check the connection line and it is kink free, put clamps on all of the connections on the map line where I T'ed it in. Truck runs flawless from what I can tell. Any advice?????

Start looking at the intercooler boots to see if there are any leaks.

Also look into the intake and make sure the turbo impeller has good sharp corners and is not worn or showing signs of dusting. Here is a pic of my dusted turbo Shutterfly | Slideshow I assume you’re hooking the gauge into the black rubber hose between that map sensor and the intake spider?

Make sure you check the actual connection where the ferrell is. Too many times, I've seen where the nut is too tight closing off the boost line.

If that is clear at both ends, you have a leak. Give me a call if you want and I'll help you figure it out.

Have a mechanic hook up a PCM scanner and read the boost reading from the factory boost sensor. Definately look for obvious leaks if the 8 psi is correct. You can test the plumbing with a plug on one end and a adapter with an air hose connector on the other.
