6.0L has lost power

I have a 6.0L (2006) with 117,000 miles. I have noticed a loss in power. The truck is weaker than it has ever been. This has been gradual and is getting worse. A friend of mine said it was a clogged EGR valve and told me to do an EGR delete. Can someone validate this or offer another opinion?

No, best thing would be to get a scanner and pull any DTC's first. Does it totally bog down? Check for loose/cracked intercooler/turbo boots.

No just longer acceleration times/have to stay on the accelerator and the turbo runs higher boosts than it use to.
