99 7.3 question

Hi,

I just need to know if this would be ok.

I have a diablosport programmer set on 85hp, muffler delete. If I get a MAP fooler, and disconnect the red vac line to the wastegate, would my boost be ok? I do not have gauges yet, trying to safe up some funds to get some.

should be ok but it would be wise to have a boost gauge, the turbo lives happily at 25psi and below.

I would also get the EGT gauge. You'd be surprised just how high they get.

I second the EGT. I'd be more worried about what kind of EGT I was seeing rather than boost. Less expensive to fix a blown up turbo than it is to fix a melted piston.
