No, not yet, the truck is parked at the gas station and I had to get to work(It sucks to be in charge of a job site) I am going to try and get back into town this afternoon and start messing with it. Thanks again.

well got back to the truck and tried to fire it up. I think the idle air control valve is stuck, it is sucking alot of air right behind the butterfly ports on the throttle body. Would that cause it not to want to rev?

If it's not fuel, try spraying the engine at an idle (if it'll idle) with a spray bottle or soapy water, but don't drown it, around the new gaskets to see if you get an increase in the idle.

(EDIT) an afterthought...when you did the intake did you separate the fuel line from the fuel rail? Lift it out of the way? Separate the injectors and lift the rail and injectors?

Could be a crimped/twisted fuel line.
It's your truck. I figure if you spend enough money and change enough parts you'll figure it out.

Did you know that if you put a typewriter in front of a monkey and let him bang on it for infinity he would eventually type out all the works of Shakespeare?

Just sayin'.....

When you did the work, did you disconnect the battery? Computer needs to be reset after work is done. Otherwise it won't recognize the new parts and can run even worse.

Hey guys thanks for the help. I figured out what was going on with the not running right, Cat was PLUGGED! I knocked the stuffing out, and now she is running like a champ! BUT, on to a new problem, it is now smoking. White smoke to be exact, could this be part of my oil use issue?

Oil is usually blue.

White is usually coolant, or trans fluid.

Black is usually hydrocarbons.

It sounds like coolant entering the exhaust through the intake...

That is my plan for tonight. I already went and got the Dorman kit with everything in it. Do you suggest anything being used as a gasket sealer on the intake to head gasket?

NO

Just at the corners where the intake and heads meet the block.
