Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

P0299 sets when there is an underboost condition but if it's setting a MAP sensor code that needs to be repaired first as it can cause the underboost ode to set. P0107 sets when the MAP sensor voltage goes low enough to be out of normal operating range. It will take some electrical testing of the sensor's wiring to determine exactly what is going on, but the most likely cause would be the sensor itself.
