Boost tube for gauge

I can't get the damn thing to stay in... Every time my truck gets to about 32lb of boost the tube pops off... I've tried to put black tape on the tube and the boost fooler thing, but it just wont stay in... Any suggestions?

If you are talking about where you tie into the line for the map sensor, I put a brass T with barbed fittings in the map line and then a screw in fitting with the right feroul for the plastic line that goes to the gauge. I haven't had any problem. I also did put hose clamps on the lines for the barbed fittings. Let me know if you want a picture. Good luck

Tighten down the nut.
If that doesn't work maybe you need a new little brass collet thingy(I don't know what there called) you can get them at any hardware store.

You should not have to ajust the ITP overboost regulator...

Sounds like you used the plastic fitting that came with the gauges... you need to get a brass T with 1/4" barbed fittings and a 1/8" compression fitting on one.
