Just as a fyi those are not sensors on the gasket but where the wiring passes through the gaskets to run the glow plugs and injectors.
It sounds like your exhaust back pressure valve is stuck closed. It is usually used to aid in cold warm ups. It is located on the exhaust sided of the turbo. You can unplug the electrical connector going to it which is almost under the turbo or you can disconnect the activation rod and wire it into the open position. The truck will run just fine without it connected.
