black/grey smoke. no power

Im new to this forum and the 6.0 world, and i need help. I have a 2007 6.0 and Ill be driving down the road and itll cut out and blow black/grey smoke. it wont rev over 2000 rpm and wont build boost. when i shut off the truck and start it back up it runs good for awhile until it does it again. please help.

I took off the egr valve, and it was completely sooted up and filled with carbon. I cleaned it and it seems to have been the only problem for now. maybe this information will help someone else out too.

Hi Logan, take a look into the EGR delete kits. Well worth it for the 6.0.

Lots of info here on this site, and a lot of good knowledgeable people here to learn from. I'm pretty new on here too, but have learned alot about the new diesels just from browsing all the various threads.
