2001 7.3 powerstroke low turbo boost
Trying to help a buddy get his truck back on the road. It starts and idles just fine, but until the eot gets to about 85 I could only get 1-2 lbs of boost out of it, and 0 when it was colder. So the truck has zero power when cold, but even when its warm I could only get 8-10 lbs of boost? I went ahead and read the codes.
Two things that I'm going to check first will be the valve cover connectors, and the EBP. I don't know what the reading for that should have been, but it was about 15 at cruising and about 30 at wot, sound right? I need a list of other things to check.
