If u got a tuner prob an overboost code, get a mechanical limiter inline with the map sensor just above heater box under the hood

Just get a cheapo scanner from autozone or somewhere and erase the codes whenever it comes on.

Your setting a P1211 ICP code more then likely. Its not your boost fooler that is the issue. It is the ICP boost that the Edge Juice with the programer causes. Turn down the Juice level and it should go away.

The cheap scanners from autozone will not pull the PCM codes on our trucks.

I would suggest getting a good scanner and watching ICP pressures and duty cycle when getting on it. You could have leaking injector O rings or a HPOP issue.
