Cool Can someone help me?

I've got a 2005 f250 6.0 i just put a bigger turbo on it and am not getting the boost out of it on the launch. I cant get over ten pounds of boost on the launch and it bogs out. I think the tune i got for it sucks! But here are the mods/APR head bolts/ full EGR delete/ FICM tuning/ SCT with tune for powermax turbo/AIM cold air intake/ 5in exhaust. If you can give me any ideas would be great i've heard not enough gas i've heard the tune is to much gas cause at launch its just putting a huge smoke show.

Did you plug the VGT solenoid back in? Also check to make sure the Mass Air Flow sensor and MAP sensor are connected. Check the black vacuum hose that goes from the MAP sensor to the intake also.

Who did you get your tune from? Like mentioned above, make sure your VGT solenoid is plugged in and check your MAP sensor hose to the intake.

Stock Injectors? Maybe you are expecting too much. Or maybe you aren't seeled up well at the Y pipe to turbo.
