EGR cooler delete + new oil cooler= no boost

Truck started right up, seems to run fine, took it out and no boost. The intake and outlet pipe from the turbo aren't getting warm either. Made sure all sensors are plugged in, what might be the problem?

when you had it apart did you clean up the turbo? It could be the Vgt solenoid has gone out. Is it producing a ton of black smoke? also check your cac boots to make sure they are tight and on all the way. Last thought would be a clogged Intercooler

I did not clean the turbo when it was out as it was a reman turbo installed only 30,000 miles ago and was working fine. I tested the VGT solenoid with a digital ohm meter and it showed 4.6 ohms, should be OK. No smoke at all. Anyone know if I can test the pigtail to see if it's OK?

Fixed- I forgot to attach the turbo hose to the intercooler under the air filter. Doh!
