Power is gone?

The EGR went out on my truck 2 weeks ago so I took it in to the shop to get it fixed, then 4 days later, injector went bad. Got it back and reinstalled my Bully Dog Triple Dog (I hear the SCT is way better for my truck, '04 F250. Which I'm looking into.) The power doesn't seem to be there anymore. Before my truck had these problems I would put it on extreme and it would blow black smoke (I don't care about this really) and it would seriously get up and go. Now it seems like there isn't much difference from stock to extreme...My monitor is reading all the outputs just fine but the power isn't showing. Any ideas? I think my fuel filter needs changed. Is it an easy DIY project?

I'm probably going to sell my Triple Dog and get the SCT with custom tunes, but until then I would like to get mine running.

Fuel filter is easy but you get fuel on you and on drive way not alot but ---its because of the placement oil and fuel filter will take you as long as it takes to drain the oil 20min plus clean up

I knew EGR went because truck was blowing white smoke and was losing coolant.

I tried plugging the programmer back in and tuning it. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong...? I'll go try again later, I'm about ready to just go set everything back to stock and take it out, if it goes back to stock...

The dealer may have reflashed your computer to a different program so your bullydog will not work now. Your bullydog needs to be adjusted to work with the new program in your ECU
