What's this valve?

Hi All,

I have this odd valve connected to the hose line running from my y pipe to my map sensor. It goes in order from the y pie, boost gauge line, this valve, then the map sensor. I am thinking this was perhaps a 2001 poor man's boost fooler? I have a new RiffRaff boost fooler unit ready to install but am wondering if this is perhaps needed to keep the correct psi showing on my boost gauge, if not a older style boost fooler? Just wondering if anyone ran into this before and wanted to see if anyone knew before I start ripping it out. Any ideas? Thanks!!

Here it is:


Here you can see it in the sequence from my manifold, gauge line, valve thing, map sensor.


Ahh the fun of upgrading your "new" truck when it's not stock...

Yeah just a little relief valve so that you don't get on over boost
