Lack of power

I've read countless oil leak problems on here, so here's another post lol. I'm currently having some problems with a buddy's 2000 F350 DRW. Oil is all over the valley, top of the motor, turbo, down the back of the block towards the main seal & oil pan. So bad it's hard to pinpoint the leak but the manifolds seems to have the freshest oil, towards the front of the motor. It was brought to me this weekend to install a MBRP turbo back cool dual exhaust & to help him diagnose his lack of power since his Dad's mechanic has been spending his money on pointless "fixes". After installing the exhaust I took it for a test drive & the thing is gutless. He's owned it about 4 months & has put on a new stock turbo, transmission, S&B intake, all wiring harnesses & now the exhaust trying to fix the issue. He tells me that on a cold start it smokes bad, & I noticed oil coming out of the exhaust. It is currently throwing no DTC's. Sounding like valve issues (guides, etc.), boost leak, or leaky HPOP. I've never worked on a PSD so any pointers would be great.

I would clean the engine real good with some purple power get all the oil and such out of there just buy alot of cleaner sprray it let it soak spray it down after it's clean you can see beter where it may be coming from the worst. If the hpop is leaking bad that can cause poor performance

There are 2 small oil lines in the vacinity of the oil filter, that have O rings for seals, that cured my oil leak. Should replace all 4. your problem sounds about like the one I had.

Hello Madmaxz. Can you post some photos of the New GTP38r, Comp 910's? So that I will review it and decide if I will buy it or not.
