What Did I do???

I just did my first mods today and I have the following issues:

Oil from the exhaust tip, not tons but it's wet in there, did I screw something up or do I have another problem? (MBRP 4" turbo back)

Hissing sound from the exhaust? I was told it will do that until the EGR delete is done, true or not?

Can I run tunes with the EGR disabled even if the delete has not been done yet, if so will it hurt my engine?

Boost gauge needle bounces? (auto meter phantom)

Pyro gauge does not drop to zero when the ignition is off or after an overnight sit, ideas?? (auto meter phantom)

I am still new to the whole diesel thing, this is my first diesel truck and my first mods. I did all the work myself so I am greatly worried I screwed something up................. Thanks in advance...

I don't know about the oil in the exhaust. Turbo seal possibly. If its not bad, i'd just keep an eye on it.
Mine hisses too. Not sure if its egr related or from the turbo.
You can get your tunes written to shut off the egr valve. My egr system is still in place, but its blocked of on the up pipe and the egr valve is welded shut. Innovative extreme race is an awsome tune.
Boost guage can bounce if its not installed correctly.
whats the lowest your pyrometer reads? mine always reads above 100 degrees when its cold.

My pyro reads about like yours a little under 200.

What should I be looking at for the boot install I followed the directions, if there is a kink in the nylon tube supplied would cause it to bounce?

post a picture of the oil, its most likely just the oil that the exhaust manufacture put on to keep it from rusting. mine was pretty damp for the first few days.

did you tighted the valve on the inside of the boost gauge with a screw driver? also did you tap it into the intake manafold or the map line?

the pyro i think they all do that. mine is the same (diprocol gauges) i was told since they are stepper motors as soon as you turn it of the gauge stops where it is. but as soon as i turn the key to start it the needle zero's out.

All 6 liters hiss when they are at idle when straight piped if they have a VGT turbo. Just the nature of the beast. If you are tapped into the MAP line then the boost gauge is going to flutter a bit. Your EGT's are going to read factory default on the gauge. Don't worry about the low worry about the High temp. If you are running custom tunes then your EGR valve is disabled already. As far as the oil how long has your exhaust been installed and do you have a CCV mod done?

The boost is is tapped into the map sensor, I did not tighten anything on the back of it with a screw driver.

Just did my exhaust yesterday, so it could very well be the packing oil...

Tunes and the EGR.. I have not loaded my tunes yet, I wanted to make sure that when the tune disables my EGR I was not going to have some sort of catastrophic failure... Thanks so much guys I will keep you posted on what happens next....

The ideal place to tap into for the boost pressure is the aluminum elbow right on top going into your intake.
