Without gauges and a monitor, troubleshooting issues on these trucks is very difficult. Is say check ficm voltage and fuel pressure. Have you ever cleaned the turbo vanes? Is the truck stock? The factory spring in the fuel pressure regulator can get weak over time.

The turbo vanes *could* be stuck. Its not hard to remove and clean the turbo. If you do a few searches on here and look around on YouTube, you will find some good tips and write-ups on cleaning it yourself. A egt guage would help confirm turbo vane issue.

this isn't a problem.. its called the choo choo train mod in which the truck gains infinite HP and torque.. JK... is the check engine light on and do you have a code reader set from autoingenuity or something?

no check engine light, but the water in fuel keeps coming on. i change my filters regurlarly and drain the fuel pump off. it will go off for a while then come back. also keep additive in it to try to keep water out.
