no boost and tons of white smoke

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just installed my new extreme race tune from innovative. My last tune wouldnt get above 18 pounds of boost so he said he would adjust the vanes on the turbo to get more boost. I installed the tunes and headed out. I got about two miles down the road when i gave it 1/4-1/2 throttle to see what kind of boost it would make. It hit 20 pounds of boost and plummited to zero. My truck afted like I had an anchor attached to it and my speed quickly fell. I came to a stop and could not here any turbo at all. It wouldnt build a pound of boost. I pulled over to make sure all my intercooler pipes are still attached and check for leaks. There are none. THIS IS WITH A 03 TURBO on MY 06 6.0.

I drove the two miles back home and couldnt get above 1200 rpm without blowing a huge trail of white smoke. it will build absolutely no boost at all. I checked to make sure the vgt wires are attached and that the egr ires are attached. No intercooler pipes are leaking either. When my last turbo blew it smoke white smoke from the turbo. This one does nothing; its just like the turbo shut off. I tried to return the tune back to stock but that didnt help.

What could casue the turbo to just shut off. I wasn't even beating on it. I am about to sell the damn truck and buy a cummins at this point. I am so sick of this truck. I hope my turbo is not blown. I am going to let the truck sit overnight and hope that the turbo decides to work tommorow. It doesnt even sound liek the turbo is spinning. it did this once before but I just returned to stock and the turno started to work again. I dont have the money for another tubo, someone help me. My truck is an 0 6.0. It blowing a ton of white smoke at anythign above 1200 rpm. I already called out of work tommorow. i may swap abck my stock turbo tommorow and if that doesnt work the piece of crap is getting towed to the dealer.HELP

i am hoping that there is something in the tune preventing the trucks turbo from workign. Realistcally I think that it is a bad turbo or maybe cracked/clogged egr

The VGT sylinoid probably broke. You know if you would have left it stock it probably wouldn't have these issues. I get thoughts of returning my truck to stock sometimes.

EGR/EGR Cooler or both. Clean your EGR valve first to make sure it's closed all the way. Better yet........weld the valve shut as they will blow open.

My truck is on stock mode. I made sure the vgt sensor is plugged all the way in. Do you just pull the sensor ot and clean it. Even with the vanes fully closed it should build boost. At least I thinl

You can try cleaning it but the sensor is probably bad. I drove my truck around with the turbo unplugged and didn't build any boost, went slow, and blew white smoke when I revved it.

I have a 100 dollar warranty deductable. Should I drive it to the dealer and have them fix it or should I see hoe much the vgt sensor is and replace it myself. Its not going to hurt the truck driving it building no boost. I can get about 30 mph without blowing an unbelivable amount of smoke. I honestly dont care about blowing that much smoke to get it there but dont want to hurt the truck. Any way to see if the vgt sensor is truely bad. I jsut swapped the turo like 2 months ago and it looked pretty clean then. I can take it out and dowse it with carb cleaner and see if it makes a difference. Thanks

You need to pull the EGR valve and clean it. Do a search as there's TONS of info here about that procedure. I would also suggest swapping your VGT's from one turbo to the other. They will interchange with no problem. You may have multiple things going on here. PM Scuffy828 and see if he can give you any suggestions. Have you checked it for codes (not that the SCT would actually read them.......it sucks at that function)? The white smoke is my concern. No turbo/boost would give you tons of black smoke.

I dont have any extra vgt sensors. I swapped my stock on over to my 03 turbo. I may have to steal one of my buddies truck. I found a cleaning egr guide so I will try that tommorow morning
