You only need a boost fooler if you produce more than stock boost. When the boost goes over the map sensor limit the computer puts the truck in limp mode and it wont make more than 10psi boost. But a stock configuration cant do that unless a blockage occurs. That said, is your intercooler plugged? The fooler is solved several ways. Easiest is "T" tapping a wire on the map sensor pig tail and grounding it. This fixes the issue, but your boost gauge if not mechanical will only read 10psi , then the signal is lost, which is why it works. Another is to buy a new Map sensor with a higher range. Any way, too much boost is not your issue, unless you have a blockage. Ive heard of intercoolers plugging up, but never seen it before. You could get some reinforced rubber hose and bypass it as a test, that would be easy. Keeping in mind performance loss from no cooler, but you would get an accurate boost reading off it. And you don't make boost in the driveway, you have to drive it and get under load so the cpu dumps some fuel into it.
