Glow plug troubleshooting help

Hey, guys i have a early 99 7.3 wish some glow plug issues. This summer I had all my injectors, glow plugs, valve cover gaskets and harnesses changed using a kit from Pensacola Diesel Injection. Ever since ive had glow plug issues. First a code was thrown saying cylinder 6 glow plug was drawing way to much power (400ohms +). So i changed out the glow plug and nothing changed. The glow plug that i removed (which was recently new) was all burnt and swelled up on the end and no longer worked when tested. So i changed out all the glow plugs on that side and found the same thing, all burnt out. I also replaced the valve cover harness on the drivers side as well along with a new glow plug relay. Got it all back together and turned the key. The new GPR got really hot and smoked. Now im thinking at the passenger side glowplugs are burnt up as well. Scratching my head on this one. Any ideas? Need to fix asap thanks

That is weird.
I wonder if they sent you Motorcraft GPs or not. But even with a new GPR it still did that. Only thing I can think is that ALL the parts were not the right ones.

The super kit came with DieselRX glow plugs, I just put motor craft ones in.

Just went and did a voltage test on the new GPR, and it tested fine, the right voltage and it cycled on then off like it supposed to. Nothing got hot. Weird, will try a cold start in the morning, everything seems fine now.
