loss of power after injector replacement

Hey guys. Changed out #3 injector on my 05' today. Was the worst auto job i've ever done only because some DA along the line rounded off the damn the square drive hole on the oil stand pipe. Therefor I couldn't remove it. Had to lift up and swing the oil rail around in order to gain one or two inches to pull and replace the #3injector. Worst thing ever. Anyways I obviously wasen't able to replace the standpipe or oil rail o-rings and i suspect they are bad. The engine has to crank a while before it start and it doesn't have the power it did before. also my boost gauge is off on both the chip and on the dash (showing around 7psi at WOT). You guys think my o-rings are bad? or maybe the ICP? I didn't do the best job on replacement on account of the issues with the stand pipe and Montana weather (did it outside).

I think you damaged some o-rings on that oil rail.

Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink
