I have heard that their is a mod where you can trick the map sensor into fueling all the time.  How does one go about doing this I’ve heard you can throw resistors at it or a buddy of mine told me that you can put that sensor under a certain amount of pressure tricking it to fuel all the time.  Does this work?  If it does how much hp could you gain?  Will the engine check light come on?  If the resistors do work how do u go about doing that.  Really any info will work.  Really looking for info just on the 2 gens.

This is a really bad idea.  It will throw codes and make your truck drive a lot worse.  You wont gain any power.   

 

 

If you want more power do it the right way.   tuning, injectors, turbo.   After you address supporting mods of course.

I agree with @Me78569 do it right. The guys here can help you decide what you want or need.

Very bad idea. Tricking the MAP sensor is not good. This trick was possible back with the Edge Comp but unplugging the MAP sensor but leave the ECM hooked to the Edge Comp. The boost fooler would produce a signal that was MAX boost. This produce extremely poor performance. Very smokey and slow to accelerate. 

 

You'd be better off just getting a Quadzilla and controlling the fuel map the way you want instead of tricking the ECM and MAP sensor which give poor control of fuel to boost. I've found over the year that producing a clean tune you can produce way more power and torque than having a dirty tuner or attempting to trick the truck into doing something you shouldn't.

No it’s not a smoke switch.  Ford guys do this all the time to their trucks.  Basically what I was planning on doing was putting the map sensor under like 6 pounds of pressure.  Tricking the computer to fuel.

It is a smoke switch. It does not add any power or provide any gains in fueling. Idgaf what the Ford guys do or think they are doing. Been around these trucks long enough to see the trends they develop.

Still not a good idea.   If you want more power, then add a tuner or injectors fooling the ecm won't do anything other than trip codes.

Get a Quadzilla Adrenaline and turn up the fuel where you need it. Way better control of fuel and can produce way more power without excessive smoke. Remember excessive black smoke is unburnt fuel.
