Question no power pulling hills

I have a 07 6.0 stock ive noticed that my truck has little or no power after 60 mph and while loaded ( 6500 lbs travel trailer) has a hard time pulling a slight incline everything seems normal boost is 22psi, volts good.. fuel filters have around 4,000 on them air filter good so im stumped... also ive noticed my oil T-6 has about 2,500 mi on it and is still a golden brown color.. I would imagine being a diesel after 2,000 it would be pretty black from soot could this all from the same issue any and all help would be appreciated

I have a similar problem, lack of power, with engine light, code for turbo. Other than no power, it runs good. Started with cleaning the turbo, the actuator ring was rusted to the hub. Put it all back together and same problem. I put a new turbo in it today without success. Did you find out what your problem is? I don't want to keep throwing money at this problem.
Thanks for any advise,
Tim

After fixing the turbo problem, it still showed a turbo boost code. l had a thought that it could be the catalytic converter. I had similar issues on a gas powered Suburban I once owned, and it was the cat. Anyhow, I replaced the cat and performance is better than ever. Apparently, my cat was plugged and flow was blocked. Im guessing this built back pressure and caused high boost readings. I hope you get your problem fixed. I would like to know what your problem is.
