Cool variable speed turbo unplugged!

I bought my truck with egr deleted, cold air intake, Spartan tuned etc... the check enginecloght was always on and there was a Turbo boost code coming up and the cruise did Not work which had me n several mechanics baffled.... we finally discovered the wires connector on the variable speed turbo was unplugged...plugged it in no more codes ,check engine light is off and cruise works BUT it barely smokes at all and doesnt seem as snappy as before... so my question is Did whoever set the truck up unplug that for a reason??

"BUT it barely smokes" you sound upset about that? I might be wrong but the fact that its not smoking as much is telling me your getting more complete combustion. What was your boost then compared to now?

2008 (Job 1) F250 King ranch 4x4, snow plow prep package with 2.5 level. Black Maxx, B&W Diehard platinums. Dieselsite coolant and transmission filters, NCU Motorsports/amsoil oil bypass kit. Turbo blankets, 5.5 PMF traction
Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

no , with a 250 tune or better, you should see a 4x4 puff of smoke at WOT....

dont have that answer, i would think though that if a turbo was un done there would have to be some huge engine mods done....

No, if it was unplugged, it was done by mistake. There is no advantage to having it unplugged. And smoke is bad, its unburned fuel going out the tailpipe. And at nearly $4 a gallon, I would much rather use that fuel to push the truck forward than make a "smoke show". Leave it plugged in and enjoy your now better running truck.
