Re: Boost gauge install?

The delete will throw a soft code and you will likely not pass smog with it being deleted in Cali.

That site's info sheet rates the working temperatures for those fittings as 32* to 140* F or 0*- 60* C, seems low rated for the normal underhood temps of a PSD and not low enough for winter temps.

did throw a code on my 01 excursion but got a wire that had a shunt or resistor or something like that, that draws enough current to trick the computer to think its still there. I don't remember where I got it, been a few years
