Need help after EGR delete

Looking for some help after completing EGR delete ....

The truck is an 04 PSD with 92k miles. Completed EGR delete with FCDP's kit .... truck started up and runs BUT ...

1) turbo is not spooling up. Acceleration is pitiful, seems like something is blocked somewhere.

2) still blows white smoke from exhaust, particularly under normal driving load and idling when warmed up.

Not sure if these are related or not .. can anyone give me some advice on what to look for or where to start debugging?

Can anyone help?

On the no power, check the boost barb,(on the passenger side rail of the manifold) make sure there is nothing in the barb thats blocking anything, find something small enough to fit into the barb to ensure its free of any obstructions. Also make sure all of your electrical plugs are attached and tight.

One the smoke, if the truck had a severely blown EGR cooler, there is a ton of coolant that will have to be burned off, this takes some time and miles, also it will take more time if you have the stock converter installed, as then tend to fill up with coolant.
