Still having issues:( needin a lil help

It's a late 04, was running fine, but I pulled it apart for oil cooler and egr delete and clean my turbo.. Started it up, ready to go for a spin and wouldn't go over 15 mph and had no throttle, so I thought it was the turbo, changed vgt solenoid n pulled it back apart n what not.. Finally got a new turbo, put it on and got a little more throttle, but now won't go over 50, even though at one point it jumped like I got a loose connection and then lost power again... But at 50 I have no throttle at all.. Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Do you have any exhaust or boost leaks? Is the CAT deleted?

It's got full 5" exhaust, I do have a slight leak at the clamp on my uppipes but not that bad lol, I just found the vacuum hose loose on the passenger side of the intake man, but haven't driven it yet

That's not a vacuum hose. Diesels do not run on vacuum at all. That is your MAP sensor hose, aka Manifold Absolute Pressure. That could very well cause this issue as the ECM can't tell how much if any boost is being built. It would run similar to blowing a CAC boot.

Yeah your right, it solved most of it but it still don't feel like its got much power, I'm gonna get a new uppipe clamp Monday and see if I can get rid of this exhaust leak and hopefully it will fix it

That will help. How exactly did you install the up pipes when you put it back together?

I did the clamps first and couldn't get one of the bolts in, then I loosened the clamps and put my bolts in, and then did the clamps and it felt like it was seated since the nut went on a long ways by hand but I over tightened it to where the bolt tried to pull out of its little ears on the clamp so I'm just gonna replace the clamp and loosen the bolts and do the clamps first.. I was just in too big of a hurry to hear this new turbo lol
