Also no black smoke at all I had a 6.0 liter before this and it would pour it out when I got on it.

Just because your truck doesn't dump smoke doesn't mean it's broke. It means that your truck is running economically. Soot is just unburnt fuel.

You need to check all your boots and clamps to make sure that you have no intake leak. Do you ever hear a hissing sound (not your turbo whin) when you mash your foot down?

That's the correct way to check for intake leaks. So thumbs up to you. You may want to take a peek at your compressor wheel to make sure there isn't any cracks or chunks missing. And check for play in your turbo as well.

Do you know of any history about this truck?

The boost gauge may have a leak to it, you may have a little low fuel pressure, high pressure oil pressure, leaking up pipes.

No unfortunately not I bought it from a guy who used for his lawn business the title showed he owned it for 9 years before I bought it. There is a banks brake on it I can turn the switch on and nothing happens the control unit for it is under the dash a light will come on when my foot is off the pedal would this have anything to do with my problem?

The brake could be stuck closed, but it would usually cause even bad normal driving. I'd check it out too.

You may wanna invest in a fuel pressure gauge. There's a thread somewhere on here that shows how to make one for cheap.
