i have the same truck as you,and had the exact same problem with mine,so i took it to my dealer and first of all i needed my computer reflashed and updated with a cold start update,and secondly i had 2 injectors down also. i let the dealership fix it and sadly it cost me 1200 bucks parts and labor, but happily it runs like a brand new one now.

Welcome to FTE caleb1563 :-X22 I moved you from General Diesel to year specific for your engine. Can you give us information on the truck, original owner ect?

Look in the Tech Folder - there is a no-start troubleshooting thread.

We also need specifics:
Any mods?
Any recent issues w/ alternator or batteries?
How long did you crank after the HPOP replacement?
What oil and oil filters are you using?

Gauges would also be a big help here to check things out like your FICM

Alot of us on here run a Scan Gauge or Edge Insight I beleive

I use the SG great unit for 160.00 check it out

But some things can be checked with a DVM=digital volt meter if in a pinch

Here is the trouble shoot checklist Bismic suggesteed

2005 6.0, no power!! No acceleration, cannot even get out of her own way. Had her in reverse, had to look to see if she was in neutral; as there was no movement what-so-ever. Visit to Dealer; all 8 fuel injectors, 8 glow plugs, and Y pipe changed. $4300 and dealer says there is nothing wrong with her. New EGR, air, oil and fuel filters. Running Royal Purple 15w40 syn. Only mods are volant cold air intake and after market exhaust. I am at a loss.
