Need to give some more info about your truck then that. Might actually have an issue with the truck that is hindering you from being able to use that tune to it's potential. Is there anything that you can tell that you observe when driving the truck?

If it's acting fine and your building boost decently(you are aren't you?), than my next guess would be maintance stuff. Oil change, filters(both oil and fuel) and your air filter, what about those? How many miles between those being change? Change in fueling habits, get bad fuel somewhere or go to a strange place during your mileage drop? If you have access to a professional scanner see if your pulling a cylinder contribution/balance issue, that would ruin mileage and horsepower for sure. Just wish I had more to work with.

Do you have the EGR disabled with the tuning and do you have the new flash from ford? You could be experiance EPA limp mode if yes to both.
