HARD start and rough after Head gasket change
WHat I have and did:
03 6.0 with new APR studs, Stock Headgaskets, fresh 05 heads (old ones cracked), new oil cooler, rebuilt (update kitted) fuel pressure regulator, new oil stand pipes, fresh o-rings on HPOP, cleaned HPOP screen, updated oil feed line to turbo, cleaned the turbo out, intake was boiled out, the G.D. EGR was removed, 05 front cover w/ new water pump and low press oil pump gears, new Y pipe, Man that was alot of work in the garage..w/o a lift...
My truck took a long time to start after I got it back together, as I expected it would crank alot because of high pressure oil system draining. I got it to start but ran really rough (kinda expected that too). I let it run for a minute or so idling and it didn't really clean up. Started again after it set for 20-30 minutes and still kinda rough. Started again this morning after a 10-15 second crank and .. well rough running.
What should I do, let it idle for a while, run the piss out of it?? I am sure it still has air in the logs above the injectors.. I just dont want to ruin the injectors..
Any input is appreciated.
