Exclamation Truck sputters and lacks power at WOT

Hello again tech forum... not my favorite place to post, but always extremely helpful!
I've recently noticed that my truck has the coolant overflow problem, better known as puking. Well now, it seems that within the first 5 minutes of driving my truck, after it has been sitting, if I get on the loud pedal, it sputters and just doesn't have power. Is this another side effect of head stud and gasket problems? I'm going to take it in soon, I just want to know what to have the tech look in to.
thanks as always friends!

lack of power cold is usually injector related and will be easily fixed with ford's latest reflash that uses "inductive heat stratigy" to keep the injectors from sticking cold...

Been to the dealer had the latest re-flash and did not help my truck one bit.

Dealer blames the lack of boost on my "aftermarket" air intake and exhaust system.Took it to another dealer and they can not fix my truck because of what the first dealer put on a "oasis report to Ford"...2nd dealer will not get paid for waranty work to cure this problem on my truck because of what was put into the report to Ford on my problem.

Yeah my truck had some of those same problems but mine would also not want to shift unless I let up on the throttle. Had it at ford and they couldn't find any codes but after I guess 8 hours of diagnostics they found that I had an intermittent injector. They replaced it and gave me my truck. But next morning guess what? Same symptoms from when I gave it to them. This must be a fix less problem.
