2000 7.3 no power

My truck had been running pretty well up until recently. I blew the hpop like that goes to the passenger side of the engine. Well after replacing that I have no power, she starts kinda hard and just.won't go. Just kinda cruising along she is a little rough, but when it tries to go up a gear for over drive she shudders and loses all power. If I try to go wot no power no black smoke. I checked the connectors near where I was working all seem to be tight but I am kinda lost from there.

Check the red and green lines that control your wastegate. Also, make sure the solenoid is plugged in.

Ok, the solenoid is plugged in and so are the red and green lines. The issue has changed faces a little bit though. Now sometimes it will build power, and others it won't. When it isn't building power I can left off it and get back on it a few times and the issue seems to go away. But it does come back. BTW I do appreciate all the help you have given me so far. With all the googling I have done people seem to be saying that air can be trapped in those lines/rails, but it should clear up in ~50 or so miles. Is there a way to bleed off the air or is it just the way it is?

No there is no way to bleed off the air other than going on out some country roads let her eat.

Also, the connection to the passenger side UVCH coulda got bumped and knocked a little loose when the repair was done. Might check both sides.

I am finally going to get a chance to work on my pickup today, I am going to pull all of the connections, clean them and plug them back in. I did notice the connection to the sensor on the hpop seems loose. Anyone know what this sensor is? I also noticed a weird issue when I am cruising along at about 1600 rpm and I tap the brake, not hard enough to engage the brakes basically just enough to trigger the lights my rpms will pick up by a couple hundred or so. Are these two issues related?
