When changing to the EBPV deleted pedestal what did you do with the EBPV butterfly valve in the exhaust housing?

Ok, that wasn't in your OP so I just thought to ask. Have you checked the running fuel pressure at idle and at 2000 RPMs? Also, please remove the intake tube between the air filter and compressor (engine off, I know you knew that ;)) and check that the compressor wheel if freely rotating and not binding at all.

Check and clean the FPR screen. Could be it. Can't hurt either way.

Depending on how long it was leaking there could be a host of electrical issues and melted wiring.

Well I know it isn't the turbo binding up. Idk about the fpr screen or CPs would any of those two let it run fine at idle and then make it just fall flat on its face? I'll clean the screen tomorrow but any way to check CPs? Or just get a new one anyway?

The FPR screen could be clogged. Since the motor isn't using much fuel at idle and not under load, it has enough fuel to run ok. You start demanding more and you can't flow enough because of the clog.

^Agreed. when cleaning the FPR screen pay attention to the consistency of the crap on the screen. If it's snot feeling then you are growing bacteria in your tanks. Pick up some diesel bacteria treatment from your parts store.
