How did you make the boost fooler? Does it do this at the same PSI on your guage every time? How much boost are you showing on the guage when this happens? Sounds to me as though the boost fooler is dumping all your boost.

I'm wondering if you have a boost leak somewhere. I don't see a CCV mod in your sig. How oily are your intake and IC boots?

I tried the same thing years ago with an air compressor type regulator I got at tractor supply, I think the regulator doesn’t work well because the air is not actually flowing, it is trapped in the line. I later did the 4.7 volt Zener diode and it works great. I got a pack of 5 on eBay for around $1 and it takes less than 5 minutes to install.
