7.3 has no power

my 2000 F350 seems to have lost its getty up. I was pulling a 69F250 on a deck over trailer the other day and the truck stalled out on me on a little hill. When I got it started and going again excessive black smoke came out. I stopped about two miles later and put it in nuetral to blurp the throttle a bit to see if something was acting up. I heard some really clacky noise coming out the exhaust and then it went away.

From there I cant get any smoke build up when I down shift and step on it and I have little to no boost on my turbo gauge. Turbo temp is around 900 even when I am trying to accelerate.

I put an IR gun to the cyclinders and found left front cylinder is 30-40 degrees colder then the other 7. I need help confirming that I in fact have a blown injector or that my turbo has failed before I buy parts and start swapping things out.

With the hood open I can hear a noise difference from the driver and passenger side of the motor. It is more pronounced on the driver side.

any help is appreciated.
