Well I have a Beans custom chip which is one of the best tuners and I had to run a boost fooler, I got mine from Strictly Diesel. Its made nice,its a non-adjustable regulator type with a nice bracket to mount it over the map sensor.

hey i had mine on one....i dont think i had the lowest rating that day....i was second to last. lol. funny thing is, my buddy has the same truck, pretty much the SAME mods, and he made more power than me...like 20 more hp and 50 ft-lb of torque. one of the things he has differently is that resistor in the map sensor....i my have to try that...right now i just have my map senser grounded out....thats how my other truck was....no check engine light....this truck the light turned on and has been on ever since...wierd.

The boost cutoff is around 24psi, have you pulled the code to see if it's just low ICP?
