no power after head replacement

Just got done replacing the heads and fixing a few oil leaks. Pulled the engine out and did everything myself.

Went to test drive and it won't get out of it's own way. It feels good just off idle but after that nothing.

Is it possiable to have switched the feed and return fuel lines before they go into the hard stainless steel lines going up to the 2nd fuel filter? Seems like a fuel issue maybe

I guess i should also add that i have a egr delete, arp head studs and FICM was replaced a few months ago. also this took me about a month to do so the batteries were out of the truck for a month and had to be recharged to start it.

Sweet! I have done that before. I built a stroker Ford BB motor with way too much $$ into it. Nothing is worse than when something goes wrong. I was getting some back fire and no run. Something stupid.

Glad you figured it out!
