Well I went to the mechanics shop and I got it fired off. It’s running rough but to be expected with a new hpop and injectors. My problem is very little turbo boost. I have to really put it down to squeeze 10 lbs out of it. It’s the kc stage 1 turbo. Now I understand it’s probably not big enough for my 238/80’s but shouldn’t it be doing better? Egts were cool what little I ran it. Bout 4 miles. I’ve contacted them by email just waiting for a response. Hopefully it’s an easy fix.

Running cool + low boost = not enough fuel.
With those injectors you should he able to peg 1,000 pretty easily.
Stock tuning maybe? Bad boost gauge?

What tune are you running?
Does it smoke like crazy at only 10psi of boost?

Gh tuning boost gauge is ok. I think you might be right about fuel. Smoking white and strong diesel smell. It’s going back in the shop to have the oil dipstick tube fixed at the oil pan. I’ll have him check it all out. I think it’s got a leak in the inter cooling and y pipe somewhere to. It’s time to put new boots and clamps on anyways.

Man this sounds like it’s costing some coin.

Yep I’ve definitely put some $ in it. Yes it’s smoking when you touch the pedal. Strong fuel smell at idle also. The mechanic said he saw a fuel leak but I haven’t saw it leaking anywhere. I haven’t done anything to it since I got it home. Been working night shift for a week and transition back to days tomorrow so really hadn’t had time. When I was driving it I had 4th setting I think tow/ street. I’m going to order all new boots and clamps and change them out. Hopefully that will seal up any leaks.

Yesterday I took all the boots off and replaced the clamps. Found a small fuel leak on the supply side just before the split to the heads. I drove it about 40 miles to a shop to drop it off and I tried the other tunes out. Street,heavy tow,stealth,all out. I’d been running in tow/economy. The other tunes would spool up to 27-28lb. But throttle response was slow. Lots of smoke with a mix of black and white with a steady haze the whole ride. This guy is very familiar with our trucks and has a built 7.3 of his own so I’m sure he’ll have it figured out soon.
