Hello, was the IPR replaced as well? Did it start hard before all this work was performed?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
new ipr. It started these symptoms all at once. When starting it ipr is hitting 84.9 and pressure at 325 when hot. Can't find a leak anywhere even air up the system and no leaks sound like pump bad but it's new also. Just don't understand the high boosting. Also if I floor it in a short moment the boost will drop to normal and run perfect until it comes out of passing gear

Did the new HPOP have the update snap to connect fitting installed?

It was bought from Ford so it should have been
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It's the type when you put the line up bracket on it you tighten the nut to lock in place
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.
that is the snap to connect. The most recent one is a solid pipe.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
what do you think
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.

If that fitting isn't a solid pipe I would suspect it as being the issue. If it only happens when hot I would also suspect the ICP sensor is failing if you haven't done so already. The injector seals on top of the injectors aren't my favorite part to replace due to the high failure rate. I would suspect the snap to connect fitting as leaking though.

Well it's a solid pipe like I said takes a nut to lock it down in place. All injectors have been done. I'm so confused being anything
Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.
The injectors were resealed but it isn't considered a correct repair by Ford due to high failure rate. If you haven't changed the oil since the work was done I would do that also.
