Need help diagnosing

My 04 Powerstroke which has 132, xxx miles just had head gasket work, bolts replaced with studs, 175/75 injectors installed, FICM upgrade, and the Extreme X tune from innovative diesel. The truck also has a Road Ripper 1000 transmission. For some reason the truck loses power at times. This just started happening yesterday after we got hit by a snow storm. I have put about 2,000 miles on the truck since all the work was done to it. Could this issue be due to not having an aftermarket air intake or exhaust on it and the motor is choking? Maybe turbo build up?

Thanks for all the help

Jon

After returning the PM back to the stock tune, driving the truck, and then programming the truck again with the Extreme X tune the truck seems to be back to full power at WOT. I am unsure of what was causing the truck to lose power or the tune like it did. But hopefully it won't happen again.
