Welcome to the ORG! Sounds like your truck is running MUCH better! Get yourself a set of digital gauges to keep an eye on your oil and coolant temps. You'll want to know when your oil cooler is starting to crap out.

The injectors were all shot. I have an 06 with 112k. Did all eight injectors and egr delete, cleaned the turbo, flushed the coolant system. Cost was 3000. Got it back last night drove home and now i spotted an oil spot on the driveway on the passenger side when I got up this morning! Another problem or is it possible just from the work done and taking parts off that it would cause this? Thanks guys.

Not a lot of places for oil to leak on the passengers side. Is it towards the front or rear? In the front on the valve cover is your ICP sensor. You might check to see if it is loose. Other than that, look over the engine carefully and see if you can determine where it is coming from.

Could be valve cover leaking.

If you had 8 bad injectors, I would certainly be installing a fuel pressure gauge. Ford has found that low fuel pressure is the leading cause of injector failures (not including dirty oil causing "stiction" of the spool valves). The minimum fuel pressure is 45 psig at WOT. MANY stock engines (even worse w/ tuners) do not have enough fuel pressure with the OEM fuel pressure regulator spring. The upgraded part is apprx $35 and easy to install.

As far as the leak goes, it could be a glow plug o-ring leaking, CAC (charge air cooler) boots seeping, crank sensor, etc.
