No power

I have a 04 6.0 with exhaust, intake and edge. Whenever i get on the gas and then let off I lose almost all power and can barely maintain speed. The turbo doesnt spool up at all while this is happening this lasts for a couple seconds and then its back normal. I tried cleaning the EGR valve but that didn't help at all. Any suggestions would be great, thanks guys.

weld the egr valve closed and block your up pipe with a freeze plug also if it is 05-07 there is a scoop in the up pipe that needs to be removed this would help you

On the 04 its just a block off plate. Maybe someone on here can make you one if you ask nice, casue I paid like 35 for mine from elite and its just a pressed out plate. Complete rip off. I would look more into that problem. Does the engine have a flat drone like sound when this is happening?

mine does the same thing. It seems like it happens more getting on it coming out of a turn, but if I let off for a couple seconds and hit it again its okay.

Yeah you can, but most people or atleast I dont have access to a welder so its alot easier to spend the 35 on the plate and install from behind the passenger wheel.

Has anyone else on here experianced this problem? I have had allot of egr problems in the past and none of which had symptoms like this.

will the block off plate set a code?

my dad has a 04 that had the same problem and we took it into the dealer cuz of the waranty 100k or 5 years on the motor. are you under a 100k? if so even if you didnt buy the truck new they will work on it and replace all of the parts for a $100 fee wich is way cheaper then an egr.
