Hey folks, had typical 6.0 issue. White Smoke, losing coolant, running hot after losing coolant.. ETC

Pull it apart, did the EGR delete and the High Flo oil cooler. got it back together and she is now ticking when I give it fuel and is not building boost near as fast as before. In fact, low end RPM boost is terrible.

None of which were a problem before. I'm wondering what to look for, checked all my boots and they're on good. I am concerned it might be the driver side turbo VBand Clamp that connects turbo to Y pipe. I broke the original putting it back together and the replacement I got was a little different and didn't seam like it would seal as well... Im wondering if the ticking I am hearing is a leak from it and therefor would cause my low end boost issue.Once Im in it good though, im getting good boost 3000 rpm plus. No dash lights lit either..

any help is appreciated.

before i got to the second paragraph, i was thinking about the turbo-to-y-pipe clamp. if you were to get a mirror under there, it might help you see if its meeting up.

otherwise, did you leave off or tear the MAP sensor hose maybe? usually that gives a CEL... like underboost code or something though.

Thank you for the input, it was that Turbo Clamp and one injector plug not being all the way in. All is good now!!!
