No power

Well my truck is still acting up from time to time, I put my factory exhaust back on today ( that sucks) I've been driving since Tuesday without my SCT and I've been running ULSD instead of bio diesel. I drove my truck around town almost all day today and it only acted up a couple of times, I just know if I take it in to the dealer their gonna go drive it and say they could find any problems with it, sometimes it runs good and has plenty of power and sometimes it just doesn't want to go, I looked down at my boost gauge this morning when it was acting up and it was making about 25lbs of boost I had it flat on the floor and it was turning about 3000 rpm's and would not shift from 2nd to 3rd, just stayed at the same speed until I let off of it then finally started acting right and runnig good again. Like I said sometimes it does this sometimes it don't. I don't know what to do. HELP HELP HELP

Go to North Carolina find Stroketech or Scuffy they can help you out. I am not a 6.0 guy so I have no clue. Unless your trans is taking a dump which could make it feel like you have no power.

Throttle Positioning Sensor if there is one. Or how about the Throttle Switch if there is one.
