boost help

i have a dp tuner and a boost fooler..
i followed directions carefully putting them on.
I see the average boost is higher then what mine gets from reading many other threads. I can get a max of about 20. I noticed in my 120 race mode my truck throws a code that comes on for a little then goes away after about ten minutes. Someone said its an over boost code but how could it be if i have the fooler on it? Anyone know what the deal is?
Thanks

It is an overboost code. Turn the overboost annihilator Dile #########one notch. Keep turning in one notch at a time until you can no longer set the SES light.




Read two posts down. I was telling you to turn it the wrong way in this post...I am an idiot some times.

Edit, EDIT....I am an idiot..........If you turn it clockwise it will increase the pressure allowing the MAP to read.


You have to pull out the know first and then turn it counter clockwise, out. When you pull out on the know the regulator is then adjustable.

Then its wide open, might as well not have it on there, turn it all the way counterclockwise, and then turn it up a little at a time until you hit the light again and then turn it down.

Also, an overboost light typically will go off quickly, I think your truck is setting the 1211 code.

Remember the overboost light won't come on until you have exceeded around 24-25 pounds of boost, so if your only making 20, there is another issue.
