I dont know why your not seeing the numbers or what but I would be talking to DP or PHP about that.
I never stated what my boost pressure is. With stock turbo or the TN that recently died on me; I saw over the map rating of 22lbs. Stock turbo gave me slightly less boost but TN gave me 25lbs. I found some leaks in plenums and exhaust manifolds, but TN died shortly after the fix.
tuners bypass the need for boost fooler through tuning. Maybe Tony doesn't do it, but I'm sure he does. I think PHP's site even specifically states that NO boost fooler is needed.
How long have you had tony's tunes? When I got my DP 4 yrs ago it was a new thing to be able to bypass or trick the map sensor through tuning; or at least for DP.
There is nothing wrong with my tunes or truck, it pulles like a raped ape all the way from the time I hit the pedal throughout the entire bandwidth. there is no defueling or loss. Call Tony and ask him if a boost fooler is needed with his current tunes; i bet he says no.
I have talked to Clay at RiffRaff, Cary from CT performance, Jody Tipton, Bill at PHP among others that have said the same thing. I specifically asked them if I needed a boost fooler cause I was going to buy one. They all said no unless I am setting the SEL light and it creates problems. I have never had an issue.
The OP has a stock truck and will definitely not see the SEL light or make more than 22lbs by just removing the red line. I also know for a fact with my truck that I do not get codes or defuel ever going over 22-23lbs.
I just might buy a boost fooler to prove you wrong even though I already know that it will not benefit. I am currently waiting for my upgraded turbo though. I will report back after I get the turbo and get it installed.
I am not trying to argue, just pointing out what I know and have been told by the tuners and guys selling our chips everyday. Maybe I am just not the best with words, but my statement that no boost fooler is needed still stands.
