You don't need a boost fooler with your tunes( if your running php). All the boost fooler does is limit pressure seen by the MAP so the PCM does not defuel. The php tunes don't defuel but they do set a soft code for over boost at 28.

That must be the code I'm getting. It was fine till I ran it hard and the light came on.
If I do the diode boost fooler will it keep the light off?

It will but tuners use the map reading to get accurate tuning at high boost levels. Using it would only hinder your performance. I get the light every once in a while and I just cycle the key real quick and it goes off.

When i "overboost" and get a CEL, it goes away after several minutes, and throws no codes. do your guys not do that? The PO put a boost fooler on mine as well, but i dont think i need it... Im not sure what its accomplishing haha

Mine does the same. If your light stays on after you cycle the key it may be another problem. Check your codes

The diode fooler works great. A regulator boost fooler will have that same limitations as the diode as far as the tuner using the map readings.

I'm might be a little bit crazy, but I just can't stand seeing the light come on every time I get into the throttle.
