HPOP Replaced with Adrenalin - Blowing White Smoke, Missing and Shaking

Hello all.

The vehicle I am referring to is a 2003 F-250 6.0L PSD.
It has ARP head studs, the EGR blocked off, a custom tune and 114K miles.
The FICM and injector wiring harness were replaced earlier in the year.

I recently had a local 4X4 diesel shop (not the dealership) replace my HPOP, cold start drama...
Link to thread: 2003 F-250 Cold Start Issue - video included

The Ford tech from the local dealership who has been my go-to guy for a while recommended an upgraded product, "Adrenalin" from the Diesel Site guys.
However, due to a series of events, the truck ended up at another shop for a warranty issue on a hub bearing (not the dealership).
Note: Though this tech has been my go-to guy, my truck has stumped him before on diagnosing issues.

So, after the HPOP install it blows white smoke, has loss of power, misses and shakes & vibrates... these were NOT happening before the install.
After the HPOP install, I had another custom tune created to address the increased flow of the new HPOP.
It reacts similarly with or without a tune… slightly better with the tune.

Since the HPOP install neither shop can accurately diagnose the root cause of the problems.

The dealership replaced the #1 injector, as the codes recommended... they went through 3 injectors still with no change.
The local 4X4 diesel shop replaced the fuel pump…. No improvement at all.
The diagnostics devices state there is an issue with the #1 cylinder (Contribution on Cylinder #1).

I am at a loss... the vehicle is barely drivable.
Ford kept it for over a week before throwing in the towel.
The Diesel Site guys who make the "Adrenalin" HPOP don’t think it’s the HPOP… they said it sounded like a sticky valve.
The local 4X4 diesel shop that did the HPOP install kept for about a week as well before doing the same.

Now I am sitting on a non-operational truck (my daily driver).
I do not have confidence that the sop that did the HPOP install can fix it.
My intent is to take it to a 3rd shop on Monday.

What could it be?
A bad HPOP?
A botched HPOP install?
Something else all together?

Any guidance on trouble shooting will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Cecil

The compression test yielded 360 psi in the #1 cylinder.
The others cylinders were in that same ball park.

The ARP head studs and EGR block-off were done in January.
The FICM and FI Wiring Harness were replaced around the March timeframe.

Yes, the symptoms started immediately after the HPOP install.
They also mentioned that they cleaned out the turbo at the same time they did the HPOP, said it was nasty.

Any symptom that shows up just after some work was done, look at that area. Could be a defective pump, or a leak or some other workmanship issue.

Just as suspected... there was an issue with the install.

During the install they removed the EGR block-off plate and failed to re-seat it correctly.

Apparently after disassembling it again they found the issue... frustrating ordeal...
