recently blew my egr cooler and was wondering if there is anyway to tell if my head gaskets were blown also?

I would like to know that as well. I just replaced my EGR cooler with a BPD model, also the radiator and serpentine belt. Oil cooler held pressure on the test stand.
My turbo has an obvious leak towards the rear, and power is VERY sluggish. Can make 25 lbs. of boost, but it spools up slow and labored. Not sure if blown H.G.s would cause or contribute to this. had some white smoke last Thursday, and parked it quick. Hoping for a resonable answer!

It would help tremendously Jon if you would put your truck configuration and mods in your signature so we know what you have. It's kind of difficult to give you any accurate advice without knowing that. If you have an early truck (03 motor) the ICP sensor is located back behind the turbo and known to leak. That would explain both of your symptoms. ICP is the Injector Control Pressure sensor.

I've added to my sig line, not many mods. This morning I climbed in and checked the V clamps around the turbo. After starting, I felt around the rear and turbo for any leaks and/or suction. Nothing felt. It starts, and idles O.K., climbing a slight incline there's a power drop off. A little gey/white smoke, but no loss of coolant. We disconnected both batteries when we put in the EGR cooler, could this be a re-learning process for the computer?

UPDATE...Drove to a job and some errands today. Clocked abount 85 miles round trip with 3400 ft. of elevation change. Turbo still whistles and lags, blows dark grey smoke under heavy acceleration from stop. Power delivery is sluggish, maybe 60-65% of normal. temps are high, but no loss of fluids. I am guessing that it's related to the turbo...some of the odors remind me of working around F-14s! Gotta,Gotta get an edge insight with SCT X-3, but after being down for a week I'm just glad to be mobile and "in service".
Thanks to all for your replies and wisdom!
