Just doesnt seem like enough?

Just installed gauges, pyro, boost, egt on 2000 psd with 160,000. I already have aftermarket intake, 4" exhaust, map fooler. My boost gause is only reading less than 10 psi whenever i put the hammer down. No matter how hard I got on it, could never get above ten. I positioned the gauge with a T piece onto the line going to the map sensor. Would all agree this isn't correct? Problem with gauge? engine? connection?

It dosent sound right. You didn't kink the line going to the gauge did ya? Its somewhere to start looking. Do the ends of the map line fit snug on the t fitting? I had to go buy a brass t fitting , instead of using the plastic fittting that was supplied.

No havent checked for kinks or leaks yet, run out of time. Roughly how much boost psi should this truck generate?

Stock, I think generally 15-20ish PSI is accepted.

You either have boost leaks or up pipes leaking or both. Look at the back of the turbo against the fire wall for signs of soot. Then start looking at all the boost boots for any ripes or anything that might look like a leak. Take your time.
