No Power, No Boost til High Rpm

My truck is a 2003 6.0, it has 38,000 on it. A few weeks ago it wouldn't build boost and had no power until I get over 2500rpm then it would build boost. I suspected it was a sticking turbo so I ran the heck out of it. The next day it ran ok, then a few days later it did the same thing. So I bought a new powermax and figured that would take care of it. I installed it yesterday and it didn't change anything. $1200 wasted! Today I checked my ICP and IPR on my scangauge

Start up ICP-840 IPR-38.5
High Idle 1200rpm ICP-630 IPR-27.8
Low Idle ICP-557 IPR-26.0

Took truck down the road at WOT ICP-2500 when I pulled in the driveway at idle ICP-440 IPR-21.1. I suspect I need a HPOP but not sure.dont want to throw any more money away. Any input would be appreciated.

I would like to know if you were able to fix this? My turbo is acting up and I'm afraid to buy a new one until I know it's the culprit. I had a shop clean it, so they say, and it helped but didn't fix it. I get virtually no boost until I dog it, hard! Then it will jump to 20 lbs. If I keep my foot in it, it will go from 20 lbs to 30 lbs for a split second then back to 5 lbs.

Just wondering if they cleaned the turbo at tall. Starting to think they just worked the actuator a bit and replaced the vgt sensor. I'm cleaning my old one tomorrow. Hoping to find some good news...

Try unplugging your EBP sensor. I unplugged mine and the truck ran great. I put the new sensor on and it's good as new.

you can clean the EBP tube too.. a piece of wire works pretty well. they occasionally get plugged up with soot and stuff.

Will the truck run okay with the EBP sensor unplugged? Would this cause the turbo to have no boost unless you punch the pedal?

Thanks!

My truck ran fine with it unplugged, ran it a week until I got the new sensor.
