egt stuck at 800?

long story short...got water in fuel, wiped out injectors. replaced with rebuilt injectors, new fuel pump, and glow plugs. now with a 4" pipe and predator 85 horse program, towing a 28' boat, it has no power. the egts never go beyond 800 degrees. this wasnt the case with the original injectors. i could hit 1000 in a matter of seconds. the injectors are from real diesel. are these poorly rebuilt injectors? a little help please. thanks

Check your fuel pressurre your regulator may be stuck from some rust due to the water, and starving it for fuel.

rust?

you know...ive posted this problem on other sites, but you are the first to suggest this. is the regulator a common problem, when water gets into fuel?

I'm just guessing. It is one of the things that I would look at, however they usually dont cause much of a problem. If you had injector issues I would think it would run ruff unless they gave you the wrong injectors or something. low fuel pressure could effect all of the cylinders in the same way causing it to have low power, low egt's, and low boost, without setting any codes.

check the fuel pressure at the schrader valve on the side of the regulator if you dont have something that will connect to the scrader valve you can remove it and I believe you will need a 1/8 pipe fitting to screw in where it was
