Question Heating and cab smell

Ok i replaced my turbo and just did a full flush with restore and vc-9 and now have ECL 1 coolant and new thermostat. Also just installed sinister coolant filter before doing flush and then changed filter after all flushes. Now i will get no heat at all until the thermostat opens but then no heat once it will close. I notice that i will get to about 212* before it even opens but I've seen it range from 170-216* so maybe need a different thermostat instead(will get a new OEM) but after doing the flush i did notice my EOT is no where near as high or as far off of ECT as it use to be so that is a good sign for my oil cooler for now. Also once i start getting a little bit of heat it also comes with horrible engine exhaust smell in the cab, enough to make you almost gag and if it idles long enough when you open the door it is a little hazy inside the Cab but will be blowing more hot air. Any ideas on why im not getting any heat until my thermostat opens and ECT drop back down and also why im getting horrible exhaust smell when i do start to get hot air.

Pressure test your cooling system. Sounds like blown head gaskets

The wildly varying temps are either from lots of air in the coolant system or from a HG issue.

The smell in the cab may be exhaust from your turbo reinstallation not having the up-pipes or down-pipe mated correctly. Why it happens when you get heat is a separate issue, unless you have a leak in your heater core and exhaust gas is coming through your coolant system.

Well I will have to pressure test it when I get a tester. Now today driving to work back and fourth about top 45mph. Was getting heat and temp only between 186-196. Went to drive down highway to go out with wife and it over heated...230-240* and also I get a whining noise while driving. Soo possible crap thermostat, water pump, cracked/leaking heads is my guess.

Well this is what i found so far. Driving around the local area it gets to about 206 even with now thermostat but goes back down. If i drive on the highway for about 5min+ it will start over heat and get up into the 236-240*range. The whining noise only happens or is noticeable when it gets to about 218*+. Once it gets in the overheat range, and i drive slowly around local area it still wont drop under 234-236 unless i turn it off and let it sit for a few min. I am starting to think more of a water pump going bad or possibly did not mix the coolant/water good enough and cant dissipate the heat good enough when under heavier loads...If worse it has to be the head gaskets. This post seems to be the same exact problem that i am having, http://www.thedieselstop.com/forums/...77/index2.html also does anyone have any how to for replacing the 6.0 water pump. Never really done one myself and hope its not too difficult of a job.

Because the bad pump doesn't explain the smell. How do your up pipes look

up pipes looked pretty good while i had to turbo off, did not see really any black on the pipe or firewall from a leak. I know the Down pipe might be part of the problem because when i tried to line it back up with the turbo it was giving me a fit and kept wanting to pull apart. My new 5" exhaust should be here by early next week so ill see if that takes care of it. For the water pump, would a Napa one be ok, i read theres are made out of steel now and not plastic like the OEM as long as my water pump housing is fine. Not quite sure what the difference is http://www.napaonline.com/Catalog/Ca...079_0258154772 vs http://www.napaonline.com/Catalog/Ca...504_0258176495
