loss of power

I just completed a oil cooler swap in my 04 6.0. The engine sounds great, I can rev it up and down with no stumbles. When I try to test drive thou it has very poor power, getting around 8 mpg (according to scan gauge) and shifts hard and shakes terribly at speed. Im not getting any codes popping up don't really know where to start looking first. I have the scan gauge so if any perimeters are needed to try to narrow this down please say and ill get them.

please any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated

Are you using motorcraft filters with matching caps? You may want to check fuel pressure, it may have just started and is unrelated to your oil cooler replacement. Do you have the updated blue spring in the fpr? With good hpop readings, I would investigate fuel. Check all your injector connectors.
