no gain to be had. Most like to put their boost gauge here. There are some plugs you can buy that are tapped for the boost fitting.

The heater only comes on when you are in park with the parking brake on and when the temp is below 30 something. I dont remember all the details, but its just about useless.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

Yea even in Montana it is mostly useless. There are so many parameters that have to be met before it's even on
What is the real purpose of the intake heater, and when does Ford say it will operate normally?

"To reduce white smoke during long idle periods at low ambient temperatures, the PCM will activate the intake air heater. Specific conditions must be present before the heater is activated: "

*
ambient temperature must be below 0 deg C (32 deg F)
*
engine oil temperature must be below 55 deg C (131 deg F)
*
vehicle power must be between 11.8 and 15 volts
*
parking brake must be applied on manual transmission vehicles
*
the transmission must be on park or neutral on automatic transmission vehicles
*
glow plugs must be off

Exactly what to do.

How'd you tap yours though. Just right in the middle of the socket hole?
