I made one and I still cant get it to work right. I cant get the gauge to read anything besides 0 or 60+psi

I tried the one in the video, and same thing it wasn't adjustable enough. It was like all or nothing. So I went to Harbor Freight and they have one for $5 that is just a turn knob attatched to a ball with a hole in it, so you can close it off or open just a little or all the way. I could make this one work is because I have the livewire and it reads PCM boost. So I can see what the MAP is seeing. I would think you could kind of make it work just by trial and error and see where to set it so that it doesn't de-fuel. Or hook a gauge up behind it just to see. But I can adjust pretty precise with it.

You gotta get one run a line from the engine side to the regulator set it at 22 psi so the truck reads that so you get no check engine light then your gauge will read what you are really making.

All you need is a regulator run a line from the egine to the reg. set the reg. at 22 psi then look your gauge up this will allow the truck to read 22 psi and not cut the fuel off and you won't get the check engine light and your gauge will read the true reading of how much boost you are making

Tried that too. It worked according to what my Livewire read. It only let the MAP see 9psi. You hook into the green wire off the MAP sensor and ground it out.
