Problems after EGR Delete

I attempted to do the EGR Delete myself and save some money but it did not workd out too well for me. I installed a Sinister Delete. When taking out the manifold I broke the electrical cap to one of my injectors at the base. I believe I am going to have to replace the injector because I have not seen the plastic electrical connector for sale by itself. I was not having any problems with my truck, just decided to delete before I started having problems. With the electrical connector attached the best that it could be I run my truck. It runs very bad at first like it is running on 6 cylinders. After it warms up it runs better.

I noticed that when I push the truck the turbo boost gauge does not go past the half mark (20lbs). With the truck running I tried to adjust the injector cap that was busted to see if it would run better but it did not. With the truck running I disconected the electriclal connector to see if there would be a differece in the way the truck ran and I noted it ran worse when I pulled it so I dont know if that is my problem or not. Any suggestions?

Need some help here guys

Would the fact that the injector connector is not clipped on and secured properly cause the truck to run poorly?

Yes, it would.

I might be mistaken, but I think you're going to have to replace the injector. I've never heard of anyone being able to replace the connector.

And a free bump for ya. Hopefully someone else will chime in.
