    I was losing boost almost just like you said. It was due to a bad bank 1 02 sensor .. and it was hard to figure out because I wasn't gettin a check engine light at all. sensor was working barely in spec not to throw a light but completly messing up fueling and timing

    Yea, just get an inexpensive vacuum boost gauge to see what’s going on and connect it to the supercharger.
    That will tell you everything.

    Going from 5000 feet to 8000 feet in the mountains I loose 1 pound of boost and going to 10,000 feet I can loose 2 pounds of boost.

    If your feeling a power drop you will know your actually loosing boost

    If you have a vacuum leak in the boost gauge or hose or a vacuum that connects to the supercharger YOU WILL loose boost BTW,

    Boost via a scanner is the most inaccurate way to measure. It’s just a estimation through OBD2. You need something measuring vacuum from the manifold.

    Can confirm. Our trucks don't have any way to measure boost or vacuum. There's no map sensor. The computer uses an algorithm to (guess) determine the readings. Not accurate at all.

    You called it. It was the sensor. Innovate sent me a new one. I installed it. We are good to go.

    Paying attention to FIC 6 info - found this image on the T4R site.

    Might try to find a spare harness to use if I can get one for cheap. Just running the stock pulley and pump but my sc came with a snow meth kit I'll install over time. How's your boost pursuit?

    Just a matter of time to do it know. Going to start working on the peripheral stuff first. Boost gauge and meth kit etc. Now that Barrett Jackson auction has started i'm done working. All the cars I was working on are entered in it.

    I heard they’re pretty different based on year. Can’t 100% verify that but maybe it was Tyler that said it. :notsure:

    I’m ok with soldering. Spare harness would be fun to have still.
