03 heavy smoke, low power, burns eyes, sounds funny

Ok so I bought a 03 6.0 with 136,000 miles with some serious problems. I have an AE and just put in studs and oem head gaskets. In the last 500 miles truck has 2 new heads, egr delete and egr cooler removed, oil cooler replaced, 4 new injectors on one side. All injectors have new orings. Ficm tests good hold 48 cranking and running.

Ok the bad it starts after a a longer crank and idles ok but smokes heavy grey smoke, smells like fuel, burns your eyes even when warmed up at any rpm. Has low power can only get about 40 MPH. Almost acts like it has a plugged converter and sounds like it. I cannot rev it up past about 3000 RPM.

It had/ has oil in the coolant, milky valve covers and the head gaskets were good and egr cooler was removed prior to this. It has some blow by or steam coming from the oil dip stick tube (its broken). I found the ICP sensor with oil in the connector so I will replace that and the connector.

Code I only have
P2285 I disconnected the ICP due to oil in it.

Oil in the water could be a hole in the front cover behind the water pump. Oil in the water would most likely screw up the injector operation due to breaking the oil down. Check the fuel pressure, do you have the blue spring update? Do you have a funny sound from the intake area?

Ok I fixed the low power part of the problem. After reading posts for days on low power and smoking tonight I fulled the fuses for the FICM and fuel pump and took the fuel filter out and cranked it, there was no bubbles. Next I unbolted the Cat, some of the honey comb was broken and loose and I thought that may be it. Started it up and and it had power and finally I could hear the turbo. Still did not run right, I unplugged the back pressure sensor and it ran good with good power, even with the ipc unplugged till my new one arrives. It still has the grey smoking problem, I suspect a bad injector so thats next to try and figure our which one with the AE hopefully.

Overfueling injector sounds right, not good for cylinders. Ok, keep us updated.
