Unhappy No start 6.0 after repairs

So I went from one problem to another. I discovered oil in the coolant and went ahead and replaced the oil cooler just to be sure that it wasn't the problem. I also noticed that the lock nut on my turbo compressor wheel was missing and it damaged the fins on the wheel while it was trying to find a way outta there. While I had it out, I decided to replace the comp wheel and the shaft bearings. All went together well. I also went ahead and changed oil and filter, changed the both fuel filters as well. Now...I made attempts to start it to flush the cooling system. It finally started, idled ok for about 30sec then loping and surging. I turned it off and tried it again, idled fine for almost a min that time then the same thing lope and surging. Turned it off and tried again now it won't even start. Before I worked on it, it ran great! What the hell did I do?

No smoke, good charge on the batteries. I did find a vac leak. But still not starting. I did get a cylinder balance code and a couple of glow plug codes but I've had the glow plug code before. I know it's something simple, but I'm just not as experienced with the Diesel engine as I am with gas. I rechecked the fuel filter orings and tightness. I'm kinda at a stand still at this point.

Check all your electrical connectors to make sure they're all seated. Check and make sure there isn't a bent pin at your FICM.

There is no locking nut! If that is missing, your turbo needs major work.

I did find a vac leak
Except for the hubs and heater, the engine runs under positive pressure (boost) with a turbocharger; so no vac leaks, only boost leaks.

Before you took the oil cooler out did you clean all the dirt off the valley before removing it? Did you drain and clean out the sump? What was the condition of the screen in the bottom? Did you add new oil to the sump on the install? Were you meticulous about cleanliness?

2 areas to start with. Use the no-start, runs poorly checklist to move forward. Recheck your connections to the FICM. They have to click, or you may have start and run issues. Do a test of your ICP pressure when cranking. You may have damaged the IPR with dirt.

I'm starting to feel like a dumbass! After checking things I saw on some threads, I noticed the oil filter I bought was different than the one I took off. It came with a new cap. It didn't push the spring down. I put the old one back on just to see if it would start. It finally did. It ran but it was missing. It also had a hissing sound at the turbo. After about 2 min, the vanes closed off and the hissing stopped. I checked the exhaust, no smoke at all. I attempted to rev it up and it died. Now it won't start again. I'm just learning this system so if you can think of something stupid I may have done, please hurt my feelings! Ha! But I definitely kept everything clean during the job. I spend more time cleaning than actual repair!

Just pulled the ipr valve, and you were right, the screen was so plugged up it was deformed. I know I'm not gonna find a kit for it at the local parts store.

Read, understand, learn, try. Sometimes it doesn't work out like you want it to. That happens! Asking questions before to tear into it can save you a lot of headache. Let's hope it has all been captured on this IPR.
