Unhappy High egts

My buddy has a 02 ford f-350 an just sitting idleing his pyro is bout 350 an than cruising bout 45 r 50 its about 900 to 1150 the boost isnt goin over 10 even floored an usually doesnt even hit ten... The truck really has no power at all seems like half throttle barely moves the truck..I was wondering if any of you guys could help us? Do you think it could be a boost leak ??bad turbo? thanks

i would check for boost leaks first then i would pull intake and see if there is any play in the turbo shaft and see if it visually looks good.

I suggest you scan for codes. I would also have a shop check out the transmission. You don't build boost unless your under load. High RPM's High EGT's and low boost, low power can be a sign of a trans or torq converter slipping.

I would check the wastegate too. I wouldnt take my word of that one though this is my first diesel let along a powerstroke. Oh by the way hello to all of you im Brandon in Alabama. 2000 f250 4x4 minor mods compressor wheel, exhaust 4" from turbo to the muf 5" the rest the way out to a 6" tip MBRP. wastegate boost tube, regulator in map sensor line S&B Intake, Manual lock TC, Drilled head drain pluggs, gutted pickup & fuel bowl inlet.Just sent back super chips flash pac & waiting on my SCT. Power X 50hp chip back in until the SCT arives. I think in having my ICP sensor going bad hard to start after it turns and turns it hits hard but has a rough idle if i unplug the sensor it makes no difference at all except i was checking for shorted wires on the conector with the truck running and pushing on the plug & it was like the motor was loaded up and it killed it. when i restarted it it surged fluctuating rpms for a couple of secound i hit the accel and it cleared up. no codes except withe the superchip the p1211 above desired level and the exhaust back pressure sensor and valve high value. i need all the schooling i can get all input is greatly appreciated. i have built several drag cars but this is the first diesel. thanks
