burning oil after a few mods... a lot of oil

so about 2 weeks ago i replaced the stock waste gate canister with the turbo master waste gate controller and put in the 203* thermostat. i replaced the o rings on the turbo for good measure while i was in there. not a drop of oil in the driveway. today the mrs. and i are out joy riding and all the sudden i've got problems. horrible idle and no power. i check all my uvch to see if i jostled one loose. they're fine. i check my oil, and the dipstick is dry. i call a buddy who runs me to get oil and i used almost the whole 2.5 gal jug. what do you guys think? egt's aren't any higher than normal. maybe the extra boost?

just checked the fuel bowl and it's definitely got engine oil in it. besides injector o rings, are there any other failures i should look for?

Have you checked your injector orings? The oil pressure is higher than fuel pressure and could be blowing by that way. That is quite a bit of oil though.

its a hell of a lot of oil! i'm in the middle of a complete o ring change now. so far i haven't seen any that looked bad, HOWEVER, i did find that the hold down bolts on my #3 injector were a little loose. maybe the culprit. are there any likely ways that the fuel would get engine oil in it, or is that pretty much it? about how long will it take to run all the oil out of my fuel?

at this point i've changed all the o rings. 2 of the pink o rings were burned on the side facing the cylinders, one pink one looked as though it may have been damaged prior to its installation or possibly chewed on by a rat, one of the black o rings near the top looked like it had been sheared a little, and injector #3 had a loose bolt. this doesn't seem awesome considering the place i bought the truck from said that they changed all the injectors prior to my purchasing it a little over 1 1/2 years ago. i'll zip it all up in the morning and see what happens.

Sounds like they didnt do a very good job. Just make sure you put anaerobe or something on the orings prior to install so you wont have much damaged to them during installation. Do you have any diagnostic tools to monitor pressures i.e. fuel and oil?

no oil or fuel gauges at the moment but it won't be long after this endeavor that i will. it doesn't surprise me that they did a bad job. the day after i bought the thing it started leaking fuel. i brought it back to them and their "tech" said it was supposed to. turned out it was the drain valve o rings. i don't think the guy knew enough to know that he didn't know $hi+ about diesels. thanks to him i keep learning more and more wonder what i'm going to learn next?
