Got my truck back from my shop after doing my full EGR delete and it seems like it is running lower boost and missing a few horses than before. Is this normal? They rechecked all the boots and clamps. The EGR is still in and plugged in, but the uppipe was changed and cooler deleted? No codes/lights. What else could cause this?

The connector is good and working. The shop even repaired part of the wiring harness going to it. Before the EGR delete, it would make upwards and sometimes over 20psi boost. Now i can hardly get it over 10 pounds when i put the skinny pedal down. My 03 did the same sorta, but i blamed it on not putting the new uppipe in. I am stumped on this new one though.

I used custom diesels kit. It has the block off plate as well as the uppipe.. Is it common for the Turbos to gum up while performing deletes?

20 PSI prior to the delete still seems a little on the low side to me. I am not tuned and will see 29 to 30 PSI at WOT.

I don't hit WOT very often; I baby the hell outta it. I know it definately is a dog after the EGR Delete. I also threw a Low Boost Code.

Sounds like your turbo needs to be cleaned. To keep a 6.0 running good, drive it like you stole it. Babying it and your going need to do regular turbo cleanings.

This is just a thought but your engine may be in limp mode IDK. Try disconnecting both batteries for a few minutes then reconnecting them and see if any codes pop up and if your still limited on boost. I was also thinking a problem with the turbo actuator but I would think you would not see boost at all, maybe some of the 6.0 brainiacs on the forum can Give some input.
