Second, My turbo was sticking so I cleaned it and reinstalled. I am trying to watch the VGT% while drive and I really do not know what to expect to see to ensure the turbo is working correctly.
Yea that's a problem for sure and your at the level where the egr cooler is getting probably next to nothing for coolant flow.
First thing is after truck sits overnight check ect and eot temps, they should be within a degree or two when engine is cold. If they are the same then you have a problem.
To anwer your question how long will it run like that: NOT VERY LONG!! Your at the point where you are going to burst your egr cooler and if blows enough coolant into engine the head gaskets can fail as well.
Your in need for a oil cooler and egr cooler. You will want to replace both of them for sure and you should go with a Bullet Proof or Sinister egr cooler for reliability reasons.
