No power on highway

Started to drive my truck this morning got on the highway and I couldn't go over 60 truck had no guts couldn't shift up to a higher gear and I could hear the engine sound kinda faded with a light turbo whistle the begin the hah a bad motor shake. Let off the glass the stepped down good power and rpm's till 50mph. Checked the codes and got a P0401.. Exhaust gas recirculation flow insufficient detected.. is this a major problem? It gas done this a few times when temps fall in to single digits.
Thoughts?

Any black smoke out the exhaust when pedal to floor? What's the fuel psi? Is your motor a early 04 or late 04? What is the ICP at WOT? When were the fuel filters changed last? What brand fuel and oil filters? What's the max boost at WOT?

I don't have any way of finding the pressure. I didn't see any smoke on the road but I did stop and floors it and plenty of smoke rolled out.. I do have a turbo back straight pipe.

Sorry, I just saw you were running a programmer. Does the truck act up when on stock tune or black smoke on stock tune?

While it may not seem like much of a difference any tune changes the base/stock programming paremeters. All of our recomended tests are based on Fords tests which are in turn based on stock programming. So some discrepancies may arrise.

Basically all tests should be run off of stock programming.

How cold is it there?? Sounds like ur fuel may be gelling up. I've had this problem 3 times this year already. Check your frame rail filter.

I think it has something to do with the EGR valve just had a buddy look and there is no block off on my delete kit and I keep getting a code po470 and po401
All have something to do with exhaust and back pressure.
I do use anti gell additive.

I use addative also but its not helping. check your frame rail filter its cheaper then throwing parts at it. I had those codes also one morning on start up but cleared them while driving and they never came back. but my filter was full of wax
