Boost gauge only pulling 10 pounds when on the gas ????

HELP!!!! My boost gauge is only pulling 10 pounds when I'm on the gas. Everything is hooked up by the instructions that was provided by the company.. What could I be doing wrong or could the gauge be bad by itself?

It could be bad, you could have leaks on the boost gauge connections, or you have an issue with the truck.

Check your map hose that goes from the intake manifold to the map sensor. I literally just fixed mine today. I was also only seeing 10, but my hose was almost in half, now I see 27. Make sure up pipes are sealed good to turbo and make sure cac boots are tight. Check out my thread, 05 turbo problems, it might be able to help you.

Sorry just now noticed this was 7.3 instead of 6.0, the same things may still apply though

Check up pipes and look for anywhere that boost could be escaping, best bet right there.
