Issues after turbo swap new icp, pigtail and exhaust turbo back

Well I couldn’t just leave well enough alone. Wanted more power so I bought a kc stage 2 and tune for it with my airdog 2 165.
Last week I found an excuse to pull the stock 03 turbo off because my icp was going bad. So I started the job of
1. icp plus pigtail
2. Replace exhaust turbo back because it was rotting off and it fell off at the axle
3. Turbo swap

I’m pretty sure my icp was bad because the entire thing was covered in oil when I pulled it off. Spliced the new pigtail in because it too was covered in oil

and then I was going to do pull my oil cooler for inspection and got as far as taking off all injector plugs but ended up abandoning the inspection because I needed my truck last weekend.

So after putting everything back together my truck runs worse than it did before. I believe the icp issue is fixed but now I keep throwing po232 and p132b. Then after any trip I start getting contribution codes for all cylinders also seeing an egr circuit code to

I screwed the pooch on this one guys. Has anyone seen an issue like this? My idle is the same rpm but sounds like I’m about to stall, I’m not building more than 20 psi boost and now all my sct x4 and Scanguage 2 say for boost is -11.5 psi.
Could I have destroyed the harness by disconnecting all the plugs to inspect oil cooler?

I’m also wondering if I installed the turbo correctly? It sounds like I’m getting what I think sounds like blow by. The whistle is not consistent like the old turbo it’s choppy. Imagine the turbo sounding choppy like how a truck idling sounds. Never heard anything like it before.

Anybody seen something like this before? This is the dd and I’d like to figure this out pretty soon. I know contribution codes mean low power in the cylinder which might mean low fueling which could crack an injector if I’m not mistaken.

Your up-pipe is probably not seated correctly and it sounds like you may not have put the MAP hose back on the manifold. You also probably need to check your FICM connections and all of the injector connections.

So my truck died on the way to work this morning. It sounded like it was starved for fuel. I pulled the quick connect off the engine side of the pump and turned the key on..... nothing. Would a bad fuel pump throw contribution codes and possible prevent the turbo from reaching over 20 psi?

Short answer = Yes

Nothing? like in the pump is not running?

For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Sorry for not being detailed.

Key on engine off- fuel pump sounds like it’s running but no fuel comes out of the pump

(had the line at the pump disconnected so it should have been like a garden hose)

Could this be a BAD PICKUP?

I’m using an airdog 4g 165 instead of the stock hfcm

Bad pickup usually hits at below 1/4 tank of fuel -- have you checked the inlet hose for the pump?

I have not checked the inlet. I was on the side of the road in rush hour doing this diagnosis so it was somewhat poorly carried out. Should I try blowing compressed air through the line for a clog? Never seen one plug a 3/8 linebefore

Had a critter chew on my fuel line right at the tank once, was just enough to cause air to enter when the fuel was low in the tank

Took a longer time to find the problem cause I didn't check there -- was no visible leak, till I got the line off and seen the bite marks

I wouldn't blow the trouble back into the tank(if there is any) -- would check the line first, and if good -- move on to the in tank pickup

Does the inlet on the pump suck as it should? should be able to feel with a finger, or attach a clear hose in a clean container

Well I meant remove the fuel line on both ends and blow it out to check. Yea I just heard that the new fords have peanut oil in the lines or something that is a tasty snack for the critters.

Late day at work so tomorrow I’ll start doing some troubleshooting

Just found out after pulling my bed that the diesels don’t even have sending units like gassers do. Do I look stupid cause I feel stupid Got it narrowed down to the airdog fuel pump or an air leak in the tank to pump line. Will be able to confirm the integrity of the pump here shortly
