No Pwer after rebuilding turb and replacing pedestal

Hi, I have an 01 SD that had started leaking oil from the pedestal o-rings. so i replaced the pedestal with a non-EBV pedestal and free flow kit, put new o-rings in it and went ahead and rebuilt the turbo while I had the turbo off.
Well I got it all back together and it's not leaking but it seems to be not spooling up. I don't know if it has to do with the EBV sensor? or something else?
The MAP hose is tight, and all connectors look to be on and good, I'm stuck! Any Ideas would greatly be appreciated

any signs of soot? Sounds like you didnt line up the turbo to collector correctly.

I did some lookin and noticed that the exhaust clamp on the up pipe is off. would that cause low power and no spool up?

This is your problem. Exhaust leaks won't allow enough exhaust to flow to the turbine to produce boost pressure.
