New to 6.0 having problems. Help please

So i just bought an 04 f250 3 months ago. It has egr delete, 4" turbo back exhaust otherwise pretty much stock. It has been shutting off while its running lately, but will start right back up. Today i was sitting at a light and when i took off it has no power at all. The pedal was to the floor and moving at about 5mph it was blowing black smoke everywhere. I checked ficm numbers about 2 months ago and lowest i saw was around 46.8 any clues what it could be? Ill post a video of what it does when i start it.

Also sometimes it sounds like the turbo shuts off, you cant hear the whistle anymore.

Check for codes, if it's stock tuned then the egr delete might be the problem. Ficm might be going south to

Could be a high pressure oil problem too. Check ICP and IPR DC%

Not saying that I would completely rule it out but I don't think the hpo system is where the problem would be. My reasoning is that he said he will run it and it will die then it will start back up again. Usually with a high pressure oil leak it will start when cold. It once it warms up and get the oil warm and thin it won't start again after you shut it off (or dies). I would check the turbo for the problems you listed above where it sounds like its not spooling anymore. Also have to agree that your ficm could be on its way out or you got injectors about to drop on you. The egr delete won't cause the truck to shut down on a stock tune file. I had mine deleted with a stick tune file for months til I got my sct and never had it shut down on me. It threw egr codes all the time but that was it. Also I'm not sure when you deleted the egr did you remove your egr valve and put a blocking plate in its place or did you leave the valve in place and hopled up? If you left it in place try pulling it out of the manifold and cleaning it and put back into place then re connect or get the block off plate and put it in its place.

Also your gonna want to get a sct programmer to pull codes and custom tune your truck or edge insight cs/cts so that you can pull codes and monitor your engine while your going down the road. Those two will be able to give you invaluable information with what's going on with your truck. Might also strongly consider pulling the turbo out and pulling it apart and cleaning it then putting it back in. Hope this helps.

One more thing change your fuel filters both of them one on top of the engine and the other on the driver side frame rail and drain the water out of the hfcm (bottom filter assy.) via the hex screw on the side just be careful not to strip out the screw head.

Hey you know pgreensvt might just be on to something here it totally slipped my mind. As far as the stalling problem goes what was the build date of your truck I know you said its a 2004 but the build date will confirm or bust my thought here. If you have a model year 2003 truck meaning it was built in 03 but sold in 04 as an 04 than you could be having the infomous ICP probelms the 03's were plagued with. One quick way to check is to look on the front passenger side valve cover for a sensor that's screwed into the valve cover with a wiring pig tail connected to it. If there isn't one that's easily spotted on your valve cover you have a model year 2003 with the sh!tty ICP sensor that's located under the turbo next to the IPR valve. You would have to swap it out and try again but first I would get a good scanner or edge insight and start trying to pull codes to see what you could come up with hope that helps you out a little more in your endevour.
