VGT Turbo Vanes clogged or sticking?

I started up my truck this morning to warm up (It was about -30 overnight), completely forgot to plug it in, but cycled the glow plugs a few times and started up no problem. Warmed it up for about 20 min and started driving down the highway.. I noticed immediately that my truck was not pulling as hard as usual, and the boost gauge showed 40psi. I backed off the throttle and cruised to work at about 35 psi.. Same problem all the way home..

Is it possible for the vanes in the turbos to stick closed or get clogged? I'm hoping this will be a simple fix

I have a 4'' dp back exhaust, intake, full egr delete, and sct tuned at performance setting

Its your egr delete causing your ebp sensor and tube to clog. Been dealing with this for two winters now. Finally a ford winter front and blocked the gaps in the driver side wheel well problem solved. I had the same symptom. 40 psi when barely touching the throttle then it would stop and be under powered and sounded like the vgt was unplugged. No more hair dryer sound. Threw a turbo performance code 2263 I believe

Yep, pull the sensor and clean the EBP tube... Also, you don't have to cycle your glow plugs because they will stay on for a few minutes (if needed) and cycling them only allows them to cool off losing the heat they generated... Yes some heat is retained but turning the key on and off is not as effective as just leaving the key on for 90-120 seconds.

I've been having the same problem and I have been getting very frustrated.... I've replaced the ebp tube and sensor a couple times, I've also replaced the map sensor. Last winter the dealer changed out the turbo actuator and that didn't help anything either. It acts up the most in winter but does some of this in summer too....Is it possible that the vanes are sticking on the turbo and that is causing this?

What temps does this happen?? I guess the EGR cooler being deleted keeps the heat
out of the EBP tube??
