Do you have any guages to post values? This has probably been said many times, but for a 6.0 some kind of monitor is important. The map sensor is on the passenger side on a triangular shaped mount above the ac box. It has a hose that goes down into the intake manifold on the passenger side. Pull that hose off and clean it out. Also check the hose fitting into the manifold that could also be clogged, if so pull it and clean it. The ebp sensor is on the t-stat housing that has a small tube that runs down to the driver side exhaust manifold. You can either pull the tube to clean it along with the sensor, or just pull the sensor, and if you have a weedeater, cut off a piece and fish it down and back to break any garbage loose. When you unplug the vgt solenoid, all you are doing is telling the turbo to fully open and relax. All these items are free except for your time, but might be worth a shot. If you can swing a monitor, get one. Mine has saved me many times catching an issue before it snowballs into something major, which can happen very quickly. The black smoke you speak of is unburned fuel. Until you can get a monitor on it, it just speculation.
