Screw the smoke screw in farther. If you have the afc slid all the way towards the firewall, you are not getting enough fuel to light the turbo.

Did you try pressing the accelerator a little while trying to start it? When I first got my truck (still had the stock AFC everything at the time) the truck wouldn't start without giving her a little throttle. I've since changed AFC spring, installed flat washers, ground the fuel plate (all the normal cheap/ free stuff) and adjusted the idle. Now it starts great with no throttle input needed.
