Turbo rebuild, now no start.

Hi folks, new to the forum and new to the powerstroke family. Just purchased a 2006 6.0 diesel f250. Just pulled out the Turbo (not overly difficult) and rebuilt it with the kit replacing the seals. It was blowing oil through. I reinstalled it and now to my surprise it wont start. I was able to get it going for a little bit and noticed that I had no turbo pressure and then it stalled. When it was running it sounded like crap. No engine codes. I pulled it out again and reinstalled it ensuring that I had good seals on all the clamps. Any ideas as to where I am going wrong? It ran just fine except or the seal leaking a bit before I did the rebuild. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

you are not going to have any boost at idle.

did you mark the unison ring and make sure to put it back in the same spot?

I did not mark the unison ring as it fell out when i pried the turbo apart. The turbo can only go together one way as there is a pin that places the two halves together. I also ensured that the unison crank pin was seated in to the slot on the unison ring. Lets say I messed that up, would it cause the engine to have issues cranking over?

Basically no. Unless somehow the turbo starved the engine of all air or exhaust flow I couldn't possibly imagine it being related. I doubt that is even possible.

Any tips on how to start my trouble shooting process? It wants to turn over and once it did...ran for a couple of minutes but really rough with very little power and stalled out.
