Does the pump hold pressure in the lines?

If not what pressure is it reading and is it causing "tame map" when not in boost?

Uhm.... Ok. That's going to be a bit complex to implement.

Good idea. You could also run a float switch in series with the pressure switch and get redundancy for the low tank fault mode.
