TW and Zoodad?

Just installed a Wildman 6 pos TS chip and HOLY... Incredible low and mid range power. On the extreme setting @ WOT from a roll I get a check engine light that sometimes stays on and sometimes goes off. I sometimes also get a light that looks like a gas pump with drops coming from it..?? Am I getting overboost?

The top end power2500+ addition is there but not nearly as extreme as low-mid. Just wondering if it would be advantageus (sp) for me to do the zoodad boost fooler mod or does the TW tune take care of that?

Thanks,
Sean

In my case, the SES light comes on when I mash the skinny pedal real hard. It lights up because my HPOP can't provide the oil my chip wants. I have the DIY boost fooler (simple parts for Home Depot or Lowes) and the HankDaddy (Holeless Zoodad)

i also have the same light (I think). Did the DIY boost fooler but have to play with it some more. and the early 99 took the air from the fender so I dont have to worry about the Zoodad.

No sir....the zoodad or the HankDaddy version I did, is a hole in the radiator support to ram more air into the filter area. The boost fooler is just that. I used a regulator set as low as it will go to fake out the map sensor. I'm producing more boost than the computer thinks I am so it doesn't de-fuel my truck.

Thank you for the explanation. I remember reading a DIY boost fooler how to months ago. I remember it mentioning something about using a 5v zener diode to truncate the boost feedback reading. I assumed zoodad ='d zener diode... Are there other ways of achieving the same result using an adjustable valve?

THank you again.

the light with the water droplets is water in fuel light
drain your fuel bowl or change your filter & clean the bowl

Cool, thanks for the fuel bowl tip. My truck didn't have an owners manual when I bought it used 9 months ago and I haven't picked one up yet so new dashboard lights that pop up are a mystery.
