Possible air in fuel lines??? Please Help

1995 F-350 Powerstroke

So I recently had idling issues that were throwing a ICP code. So I just replaced the ICP. I had to remove the fuel bowl and disconnect a bunch of lines to do this. So when I was done and after relentless cranking, I got it started, the check engine light didn't come on, and it ran good at first. When I took it on a test drive, as soon as I went full throttle, the motor cut back, check engine light came on, and if I let it go to idle the motor would die and be hard to start back up. It felt like when this happened I was not running on all 8, and the motor sounded different, like the turbo was louder than the motor. Now when I go to start it, it cranks up, and immediately dies, wont idle at all. Is this due to air in the fuel lines? And if so, how do I purge it?
