Customer Question

No power, I assumed sticking vgt, pulled the turbo and checked the vanes, all looks good and actuator freely moves, no leaks can be found, truck is back together again, but same problem. exhaust back pressure is 15 psi at idle and gets up to 30 at wot. boost pressure MAP is 2.5 psi at idle but will only build to 4.5 to 5 when wot. Ideas?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

At full throttle, I assume it bogs down. Is there exhaust smoke when doing this?

Any trouble codes?

SO far the info points to sticking EGR valve concern.
