Motor has difficulty revving over 2500rpm

Hey guys I'm 17 just traded my gas job for a 1996 7.3 with 283k. when I got the truck it didn't run, and the trans was bad. Good thing was the truck came with new/used injectors and a built trans both to swap in. Plus a huge crack and two holes in one manifold

My buddy who's a diesel mechanic swapped in the new/used(155k) injectors with new o ring from Ford. The truck runs and drives, just shifts all out of wack.

The problem I have is that the truck while driving doesn't like reving over 2500rpm it won't move past. Obvious sound of a mis present. It only revs past when I floor it, and stumbles at 2500rpm but then picks up. I have the ts 6 when on any high hp setting the problem is non existent.

Oh and when on the 140hp setting if I rev it in park it dumps blue smoke, but only when the truck is stationary.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm worried sick that I big time messed up.
