HELP needed fast

whats up guys I need some info I recently took my truck to ford (under warranty) and had them rebuild the turbo they used a remanufactured housing and a new unison ring. the truck is running ruff iI've drove 20 miles and gone through a 1/4 tank of fuel and the turbo dosent sound right and it has a 5 to 8 second hesitation BAD turbo lag before the turbo starts to spool and with my foot through the frikkin floor it only puts down 20lbs of boost and the truck has little to no power? Is there any way that they rebuilt the turbo wrong or the unison ring was put in or installed wong Im gonna take it back in tomarrow but im really frikkin pissed?

Might help if you put the year of your truck either in the text of your post, or in your signature line.
The unison ring basically can't be installed wrong. It won't go together if it is wrong.
Check the rubber hose that comes off the intake and goes over towards the passenger side of the truck (MAP hose). Make sure it hasn't popped off either the intake or the MAP sensor (which is on top of the AC/heater box), check the hose over for splits/pinholes.
Check to see if the MAP sensor is plugged in.
Check the EBP sensor (different locations for different year engines). This sensor sits on top of a small steel tube that comes off the drivers side exhaust manifold.
Might save you an angry trip back to the dealer and are things that can be easily overlooked.

Did they replace the solenoid? Maybe a vgt relearn? Any loud hiss from the exhaust? I would take it back regardless no reason a repair from a delear should leave you with more problems

no loud hiss,you don't even here the exhaust at all even if your right buy it. and no they did not replace the solenoid that I know of they told me they rebilt the turbo and put a new pedestal in, on the paperwork its billed out as
1 3c3z-6c885-a ring $171.33
1 5c3z-9g489-acrm housing $1044.04
1 5c3z-9g489-acrm core return $150.00
1 -w302725 hardware - mis $5.36
with labor as $522.00
total of $1825.60

when I went friday and told them that the truck was runnin rough and the turbo was not spooling up right they had there diesel mech hook up thee laptop and drive it around, when he came back and the service advisor said sorry theres nothing wrong I started *****in then the service manager got involved and took me for a ride with the laptop hooked up and said there is no way a stock 6.0 will ever see more than 20 psi at max maybe 22 now before all this on any given day I could romp on it and see EASY 28psi of boost and that's when the service advisor said they replaced the pedastol as well? Now to me ive had the truck since it had 20k on it it has 56,780 now and it NOW does not have that POWERSTOKE turbo whistle and it feels like the motor is workin harder and the turbo has a funny sound like a cop or firetruck siren sound when spoolin up and when you let off the throttle spoolin down and theres no get up and go power like before or to me like 6.0L vgt turbos are known for that off the line out of the hole jump. Im goin to take it to another ford dealership or a place I just found from a friend powerstroke performance in ft myers I talked to the guy and he was agreein on the same things we on here were all talkin bout said he'd do a dio for 50 bucks and he'd be the one I would take the truck to once the warranty runs out to start doin the major work on it anyway so will see????
