since i did my egr delete i've noticed a drop in boost pressure, i could hit 37 psi before, and now, all i can get 22... and the pressures vary somwhere between .5psi and 1 psi at times... do i have an air leak somewhere? is my turbo going?

i don't have the edge on yet, the way my guage bounces makes me think it's an air leak, but i'm not possitive, hope it's not the turbo, those don't appear to be cheap.

check the boot on the boost hose that slips onto the intake horn, you might not have it all the way on and you could be leaking there
yeah, i blew that off right after the install, it was a little out of round, i'm going to go to the stealership or maybe a cummins shop tomorrow and get a new one. anyone know of a cummins dealership in Gillette, WY?

she's tight now, over 5k on it since it first went, it almost looked out of round, and didn't think much of it till today, i turned up my SC and the boost guage was bouncing, it hadn't done it since i lost the clamp. i fixed it in the dark alongside the road and hadn't had any problems since

found the problem, the line to my guage was cracked right at the elbow off of the intak horn. thanks for the help guys, i guess you should look for the simple stuff first

i'm guessing when i pulled the intake horn iput the hose in bind. i know i hit around 30psi after the delete once, but it was a struggle, and the may have put enough preesure on the line to burst.
