Guages dieing help

I have a 06 6.0 S&B CAI, 4'' exhaust, CTS, and an SCT tuner programmed to street mode. It drives normal and has plenty of power but if I floor it and keep it held down the battery light comes on and in another second the gauges die until I let off. I havent had a chance to try other tunes but Im guessin they are the same way. Im sure its something with the SCT but what is the weak point making it do this?

I doubt its the tune, but return the truck to stock and see if that corrects the issue.

You may have a more serious electrical issue going on.

When you get any of these issues running tunes, the first step is to return to stock and recreate the problem.
