If you want you eliminate fuel cut all you have to do is block the vacuum hose that leads to the boost pressure sensor.
Bingo. I was hoping someone was gonna say that. The map sensor is located on the back of the wall toward the trunk, sortta near the intake manifold. Just disconnect the vacuum line and block it with a bolt or something and viola no more fuel cut (however you stock boost gauge wont work anymore.)

Doesnt the boost pressure sensor do other functions besides just fuel cut? Wouldnt that be imperetive to letting the ECU know how much fuel to add.... beacuse when a turbo boosts it creates a lean condition and you need more fuel... if the engine sees no boost then you could run super lean.

The boost pressure sensor doesn't factor into how much fuel the ecu adds. It simply sends a signal to the ecu to control fuel cut and the factory boost gauge. When the ecu sees 5 volts coming from the sensor, it initiates fuel cut.

When u mash the throttle and u get boost, the ecu dumps added fuel to keep the engine from running lean. This is controlled by the throttle position sensor. When the ecu sees wot, it adds fuel additional fuel, which makes it run pretty rich, but safe from going boom!

I use the vacuum line that originally ran to the boost pressure sensor for my Omari gauge. It eliminates fuel cut, and provides a free/clean line for my gauge.

You guys got any pics on that sensor and hoses that lead to it. I just got a 3sgte installed in my corolla so the sensor may have been installed somewhere else. Pictures will really be helpful or just a description. thanks guys.

On the 2nd gen MR2, it sits on the rear firewall closest to the trunk on the passenger side. There is a vacuum line running to the bottom of the sensor coming from the intake manifold. The sensor has "turbo pressure" written on top.

I'll try to take a pic of mine tonight.

If they are plugged, there's a chance one of them used to run to the pressure sensor. Check for the little black sensor on the rear firewall. If there is an empty nipple on the bottom of it, you won't have fuel cut and your factory boost gauge will be non-functional.
