New to 6.0 need help and advice

Hello everyone I'm having trouble with my 6.0 it's a 06 f250 lariat. It has been studded and egr delete kit installed. Other mods are 4 inch exhaust and an s and b cold air intake, with an sct sf3 tuner with tunes from innovative diesel and quick tricks. I'm very new to diesels and in by no means a diesel tech I'm use to gas street cars. Anywho I just got this truck in January and its been running really well, but the last few days its been like hesitating like a gas motor that really needs a tune up but it doesn't do it all the time. Can anyone please help me I'm way out of my element. I'm also sorry if this has already been brought up in another thread.

^^^^^very good advice. These trucks do not enjoy the old dino oil at all. I was very happy with the change after going with the t5 and archoil route. So the t6 with rev x or archoil should do the job
