Quadzilla Recon XZT Question

I just installed my Recon XZT and have a couple of questions. The boost gauge reads 0 most of the time. When I accelrate I can get it to read up to 5 or so but cruising and idle it is staying at 0. The instructions were a little unclear but I tapped into the middle wire on the MAP sensor. Also the transmission temp reads 100. I have only driven it a few miles since the install but it has never moved from 100. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The trans won't move until it warms up beyond 100... my gauge sometimes won't move until I'm 15 minutes into a drive.

The boost should be around 2-3 psi while cruising say 55mph... and what kind of programming do you have? None? Chip? Program? If it's stock see around 15 or so at WOT and around 25 or so with a chip/program @ wot.

I went out and ran the truck wide open with and without the hypertech power programmer. Without the programmer I was getting up to 15 psi of boost. With the programmer it was around 17 psi. I guess it seemed odd that cruising around town I was seeing 0 psi. I also found out that the end of the tranny temp sending unit has broken off in the tranny. I looks like it is hanging in the port so this weekend I will need to pull the pan and try to get it out. I had to call quadzilla to get two more ordered. Did you have any issue with the transmission temp. sending unit? While it is on the lift for that I will install the EGT gauge.

i'm looking to get the quadzilla recon xzt and i just had a quick question. from what i have read from the installation guide, it looks like it reads the boost straight from the map sensor, so my question is will it also act as a boost fooler, and if not what would happen if i put in a boost fooler? will the recon read the actual boost or boost fooler numbers? if i'm way off base please by all means let me know, and if you have any suggestions they are greatly appreciated.
