2000 7.3 crazy white smoke after injector change, no boost

My old man bought a 2000 f250 at an auction a few weeks back. It didn't start, so he got it for a fairly good deal, or so he thinks. Whenever he plugged it in, it would start, but if it was 70 degrees out and wasn't plugged in, no start.

I replaced all 8 glow plugs, the glow plug relay, the under valve harnesses and 2 injectors that were bad. The air filter was black and completely clogged so I changed that too.I went to change the fuel filter and when I drained the fuel bowl, what came out was clear all the way through and smelt like alcohol, not diesel. Now the truck will start and die within like 5 seconds. Sometimes it will start up great, but it continuously DUMPS white/grey smoke while idling and driving. Builds a max of 3psi boost, and won't accelerate past 50-55 mph.

Not sure if it's a turbo issue, I may be wrong so correct me if I am, but I believe a bad or leaking turbo can cause the white smoke. Maybe I messed something up when I work on it, not sure.

I cleaned his EBP sensor and tube, seemed to help a little but not much. ICP sensor had oil in it, could this be an issue?

I did put it down to the station and filled it with diesel and a fuel additive to get diesel back through it instead of whatever the previous owner was using.

Any ideas or suggestions would be great, I did what I could do, but without access to a scanner to pull codes, I'm at a loss.

If the ICP sensor had oil in it the sensor is done. Might need a new pigtail to if it got oil in it. Unplug the ICP and see if that helps. Unplugging it just sends it into default parameters and won't hurt anything.

Replace the icp and icp pigtail and then get a blue Tooth obd2 connector and the torque app for an android phone. Then you will have a $20 scanner. But it takes a while to get the adapter in.

If u can get to 50mph anyway you should be getting more then 3 psi, does it have gauges or what? Could either be a faulty gauge or line to gauge, but sounds like a boost leak. Check inter cooler boots, inter cooler, and such, go over the whole system or get a boost leak tool to see if it holds pressure. Does it idle fine? Check engine light on? Even though your icp may be bad, may not throw a code unless unplugged.

It has gauges, they were installed by the previous owner so I suppose they could be wrong. It idles great, just dumps white/grey smoke out while idling, and when driving it. No check engine light, but I'm sure there's some codes. Unplugged the ICP(which did throw a code) and idle doesn't change at all, but I'm still going to replace it.

Are you sure the two injectors you replaced were the only bad ones?

When I pulled off the valve covers, those were the only two that made the truck stubble when unplugged. After I replaced them, I one by one tested all 8 again, and each one made the truck stumble, to me showing they were all working injectors.

it was for sure clear enough to have been water, but it smelt like straight alcohol. I know you can run all sorts of alternative fuels in these trucks but I have no clue what it was, or if it could cause other fuel related components to fail
