You check that 1 1/2" rubber boot between the intercooler and the turbo yet?

Thats what did it to mine

Also check that 2" rubber boot between the intercooler and the throttle body

You changes the FPR, but did you check the actual fuel pressure? The new reg could be bad / out of spec right out of the bax... rare, but does happen. If the fuel return line is pinched / restricetd, the FPR wont be able to control the pressure.

A out of spec ECT telling the EEC the motor is colder than it really is can cause a rich condition. A out of calibration VAF can also cause a rich condition.
