Truck starts but no power

Ok so my girlfriend was driving her truck to school this morning and her truck was bucking bad. i thought it would be dirty injectors or an ICP because my truck used to buck then we got the injectors cleaned and ICP replaced and it was perfect. Well on her way home from school while sitting in the turn lane she tried to give the truck gas but it wouldn't go anywhere. She tried other gears but the truck just sat there running and not moving. could this be an electrical issue? I know that on some years of the 6.0's after shifting so much it would grind through the electrical wire on the steering wheel and short circuit everything on the truck(did it to my truck and put electrical tape over the wire and works fine now.) could this be a electrical issue? also she just got the performance tune from SCT back in her truck because her SCT broke. while the SCT guy was trying to fix her programmer and put the tune back in the truck the truck wouldn't start because of what the SCT guy was doing. im thinking it could be the tune in her truck. i told her to put the stock tune back in because i had a feeling it would run again if the stock was back in but the tow truck was already towing her truck. ANY help would be greatly appreciated here.

the truck is a 05 f250 6.0l with 91K miles 8" superlift 22" rims 37" tires SCT programmer ARP head studs recently blew head gaskets which is why she has the ARP's and had the turbo replaced due to sticking vanes and also had a new egr put in.
