Question 2004 6.0L Problem?

Ive been snooping around for a answer to a problem I'm having with a '04 6.0L but I am not coming up with anything that has all the same symptoms as this truck...

2004 6.0L Powerstroke F 350 ~ 144,xxx miles ~100% stock work horse.

The problem is happening mostly under load(95% of time). The turbo starts fluttering and the truck just shakes pretty violently and pummels solid black smoke(NOT white). I hooked up a SnapOn Scanner, the FICM's voltage is only at about 32 at idle but goes up to 46-48 while driving. I'm stumped on what to look at next? A new stock replacement turbo was installed and has only about 5 miles on it due to it being bad.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

So the new turbo is bad too? Your FICM should be at 48 all the time so that could be part of the issue. How are your batteries? There is a ground wire for the FICM on the drivers side on the very back bolt for the intake, check and make sure its on there good..that has caused issues for folks in the past too.

The turbo is brand new.
Batteries are good.
FICM plugs and ground are all on the way they should be.

Everything Im seeing seems to point at the FICM or injectors but those are expensive product to purchase not to be sure thats what it is...
