Need some help.....no power

Today I replaced my egr cooler and oil cooler. Everything seemed to go pretty good besides the dropped tool or hardware.

Anyways It took a little to get it started but then it did and it starts every time just fine. My problem is I have a rushing air sound. My wife and I both think we here it coming from the passenger side rear by the turbo. I also have no power when I step on the gas and the heater is blowing cold.

Does anyone have any ideas? I am new to diesels and I'm completely lost.

It's the egr cooler. I could feel it blowing like a big dog. Trying to get everything lined up.

Well I got it. Got the egr cooler lined up, the up pipe to the turbo bolted. Bolted the down pipe back on. Then I couldn't get the 2 front bolts back it the turbo. Loosened up the down pipe to cat and everything lined up perfect. Runs good and strong and the heater is blowing nice and hot.

Now I think I have a heater hose leaking. There is coolant running down the passenger side wheel well. It was doing it before I changed out the coolers but I thought it was the A/C system. Can tell it's coolant now with the red coolant.

Any ideas? Thanks.
