Turbo and radiator issues...

I've just installed a bunch of stuff on my truck. BPD oil cooler, aluminum radiator, blocked off egr cooler, A/C compressor and dryer, etc. My issue is that when I drove it home, I've noticed that the turbo isn't creating boost. The highest it would go to was 5 psi on acceleration. When I opened the hood, there was a little smoke coming from below the turbo near the egr cooler and a hissing sound that would cycle on and off ever 10 seconds or so. P132B was the code on my edge CS. Additionally, there is no coolant overflowing into the degas bottle from the radiator. I've topped the system off to the min level and it seems to hold there. Any ideas of what the issue could be with either of my problems?

I would double check the Y pipe connections to the turbo. The smoke you are seeing could be actual exhaust coming from the Y pipe. Then double check your CAC hoses to make sure they are not loose.

Yea, just went out there and noticed that some dumb a$$ forgot to tighten the v band clamp for the y pipe connection. (I feel so retarded....) any idea of what's going on with the radiator? I can hear the coolant sloshing around in there. Do I need to add more coolant because it's brand new? Also the level in the degas bottle is lower.

It's very easy to forget that clamp lol. The coolant level will naturally go down after you fill it up for the first time. You should add a little more coolant as needed to get to the cold level line after it settles into the different systems you installed. Not quite sure about the hissing sound. Could you be a little more specific about where this sound is coming from?

I'll have to take a vid of it when I get back and post it. Might not do it anymore cause both clamps were loose. But I've got them torqued down now.
