is my recon foolin me?

i have the recon guages in my truck along with everything else i have listed. why can i only get like 21 pounds of boost at wot. the check engine light doesnt come on? i was wondering if my recon wasnt reading accuratly because its hooked into the map sensor line. is there anyway to put a boost fooler on without fooling my recon guage?

Almost sounds like you have a boost fooler already! Where is your boost gauge tapped into? Is it the map line? You should be getting better then 21 psi.The reason I say that is if you have it tied into the map line in between the fooler and the map sensor you will only read what the fooler is set at which will be close to 21 psi.

you could put your boost line in the AIH spot... some vendors sell a fitting that screws into the spot and has a fitting for your boost line..
