Finally think we have found the culprit for my issues with the truck after H&S instal
So after the local ford dealer couldnt figure out the issues and said everything was "fine". took the truck to Rudy's diesel in Durham (3hr drive). They first ripped the DPF off and tossed the 5'' exhaust that I had sitting in the back seat to rule out that the DPF was clogged up.. after they did that they were able to see that the truck was having issues with the Low pressure pump. Now comes the waiting game for approval from my extended warranty company so they can order the new pump and get it installed on the truck. overall I am happy so far even though I have been without a truck for 3 weeks over the past month (2 weeks at ford and now 1 week at rudys). Hopefully they will have it on the road next week (mon/tues is what I am hoping for as I need it to get to my VA appointments.) Was tempted to just have them do a Airdog but david their service manager said that I will have more issues with the Airdog than I would a OEM (oem is around 530.00 airdog is around 700+labor). I am sure I have been a bit annoying calling in each day to find out if they found any issues. and now I am sorta doing the same just to help if at all possible with the warranty claim. So David and the staff of Rudy's I do apologize for being annoying I just need this truck to get to medical appointments can get a bit frustrating especially after only having the truck for 3 months and putting 6K miles on it.
So for those who need work done I do recommend Rudy's as they are able to find those issues that a lot of ford techs are too lazy to really dig deep into.

The guys at Rudy's didn't know what to do with me this morning... I thought that was pretty dang funny. " Nobody will ever understand the bond between combat veterans unless they served in combat!
