EGR problem?????

I have a 2003 F-250 and just turned 95,000 miles. My question is that I cleaned my EGR valve, just cleaned it because I was told it would run better, then about a week later my turbo wouldn't spool and acted like it had a stuck vane. I took the turbo apart and cleaned it put it back together and drove around with my truck stock for a while and it ran good, just slow. Put my SCT back on and it started smoking heavily and the truck was bucking and I had no boost. The turbo was just shoving air back out the intake (turbo Fart). I don't know if it has to do with the EGR or the SCT. I'm only running canned tunes for now. Planning on getting X-street or X-race after I get my gauges installed. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm at a loss as to what it could be other than those two variables. Also I found a good write-up on how to do your own EGR delete and have thought about doing it, is it worth doing it myself to save some money or just by a complete kit?

Thanks, Josh

Sorry for the long post

you could pull the egr valve off and make sure that it is not stuck open or anything like that and make sure that you dont have coolant on it.

+1 for delet you shoud also look at head studs. but if you dont what to go that deep i would say to get the exhaust block plate that gos on the down pipe you should be able to do this no problem if you already pull the turbo off. forgot abou that option but best be far.

95.000 miles. return truck to stock settings take to ford dealership, you are still under the 100,000 mile warranty. don't volunteer information. Your CEL is on truck has no power, and turbo won't spool up

I thought it was a 5 year/100,000 mile warranty, which ever comes first?

It is, so your warranty is gone if you didn't get the extended. Did you check your coolant? I had this problem about 2 weeks ago with it smoking and losing coolant. The smoke was white and it was the EGR. I agree with getting the EGR delete, but I think that screws up emissions, so if you have emissions in your state then don't do it. There is a guide on how to do a bypass for the EGR if you want to go that route but a full Delete would be better.

Pull the entire EGR valve/housing off. If it is wet inside the manifold you have and EGR/Oil Cooler problem.
