psi gauge not working after egr delete

Hi everyone,
This past weekend I installed an egr and cooler delete kit from Adam at FCDP. I did the work on my own and for not having any mechanical training i have to say that it was quite rewarding to hear the motor turn over first turn of the key. The only problem I seem to be having is the psi gauge in the dash is not responding to the turbo. All the connectors are plugged in their origenal positions except the one that goes to the egr itself(which is not there anymore). Please Help

Are you sure you that the MAP sensor is hooked up?

there is also the possibility if you bumped the hose for the map too hard you may have cracked the map sensor tubing connection.

You guys are good!! I went out and rechecked the map connector and all looks well.....wait.....wait a minute...whats that loose rubber hose at the end of it? OOOOH. That has to be pushed back onto the nipple on the manifold. Now it works. I kill myself sometimes. Thanks guys.

Glad you got it fixed, even better that it was simple.
