No power after 45-50 MPH after work done

Hey guys, im new to the Powerstroke world.

i just ha my Cat deleted and egr went out and had that deleted. now there is no power after 45-50 on the highway, unless i floor it for a few secs, then it will shoot up RPMs. also, since the Cat/Egr delete, it does not smoke... i used to be able to blow puffs at tailgaters lol


No trouble codes besides the EGR.... i changed the fuel filter, its due for an oil change soon, i just dont know what it could be.

i was thinking (but i know very little about these engines):
*Fuel pressure regulator (has silver spring that i know of, want to get the new blue spring anyways)
*Computers reflashed

Any help would be great!!!

i have on my truck:
*MBPR 4" cool dual turbo back exhaust W/ no cat
*Edge juice W/ attitude
*egr delete
*brute force intake

Just bought my first PSD after my car ('07 dodge) spontaneously combusted while driving home from vacation....

2004 F250 Lariat FX4 Crewcab, short bed, EDGE attitude W/juice, MBRP cool duals, cat delete, egr delete, tinted windows, 7" flip out in dash, 10" flip down, 12" kicker L7 between the seats.

soon to come:
-remove the EDGE and replace with SCT Livewire with custom tunes
-maybe lift 6"
-New rims/tires

any codes? and you may want to look around the ficm and make sure the connectors are in all the way/ the harness isnt chaffed. i found a broken off ground wire coming out of the ficm harness.... i am new to diesel trucks and am in no way a mechanic lol but can handel simple things.

also, my truck will build boost, but stays around 2K rpm and does not "go"....
