Boost fooler question

I dont know if this is a stupid question or not but I was wondering if I can put the air regulator boost fooler in the map line even tho I have the boost gauge fitting in the map line? Because I over boosted the truck ( in economy tune but it doesnt do it in street setting? ) and it threw about 6 codes.

yes you can but just make sure you have the boost fooler after where you have the line tapped for the gauge. if you dont put it after the gauge your gauge will only read what the fooler is set to.

yes put the boost fooler in between the boost T and the map sensor. If you want to set it the most accurately, put in between the manifold and the boost gauge line, then drive it and get on it a few times, your boost gauge will read what the fooler is set to, then swap the boost fooler and boost gauge line.
