Map Sensor question

This is my first post so dont be too hard on me. This is also my first powerstroke. I have had 4 Dodge Cummins previously but this is a different creature, but I likes it!

The truck is a 2003 SRW f350

Here's the dilema: I purchased this truck and everything seems fine. Except for the check engine light being on. I pulled the code P2037. Went to check the map sensor and to my surprise it is missing. The previous owner took the bracket and all and just left the wiring harness and hose hanging in the breeze. My question is do you really need the map sensor? Will it hurt anything to drive without it? It seems to run fine.

Any responses appreciated. Im not sure this is the correct forum to ask this question. If not lead me in the right direction.

Oooooo.......kay. That's a good one. Don't be insulted by this question then. Does it even build ANY boost? Even more importantly so being a 2003 truck, since it's the only model year that uses what's called "inferred EBP" to set turbo boost, as opposed to 2004 and newer trucks that all use EBP sensor input to set turbo boost.
