i have the banks intercooler kit and the port to attach the boost guage is just after the turbo outlet, if i recall correctly stock it was in the y pipe. i would think a better place to accurately read the boost would be just before it dumps in the engine. am I correct? would numbers change in the guage reading by moving it after IC? if so higher or lower?

pressure is pressure, the gauge doesn't know where it's at, just what the pressure is..... I had mine in two different places, and the pressure was the same .... ....

I've had too many issues with trucks having gauge flutter on the map line. So I always recommend putting it in the spyder or intake Y.

For all you non intercooled guys here is where I put mine-

Mine fluttered really bad in the map line. When I got the intercooler it had a port right after the turbo and no flutter up to my max psi at 24 lbs

I would think after the IC would show 1-2 Psi lower. You loose a small percentage from my experience.

Well don't you want the reading after the intercooler? you want the actual psi going into the motor don't you?

Figure that you will loose 1-2lbs post I/C but it is close enough to tell you what you need to know.
