I bought a sick o help

05 6.0l 4x4 with 4"straight pipe,sct performance setting,afe stage 2 intake, with no power . from take off to 70mph i can floor it and it will rev up to 3000rpm for a while and then it will shift hard. my boost only getts to 21 or so and it used to push 30 or more. power loss is huge, my truck used to take off like i got rearended by a semi, and keep pulling to about 90mph, and now i couldnt out run a neon. HELP ME WHATS WRONG WITH MY BABY!!!!!!??????i have a small amout of white/blue smoke at idel that doesn't smell like coolant, no egr or cooler(deleted), filters are new, oil is new, running sct livewire, i had 14 different codes but i erased cause i thought they were because i killed the batteries trying to start in 10deg weather(forgot to plug in).

Pull the codes off it. Are you blowing any smoke, black or white? Too hard to say based on the info you provided. Could be the turbo going south, could be the HPOP, could be a number of things. If you're blowing massive amounts of smoke, white = EGR, oil cooler problems. Pure black and no power could be turbo problems. No smoke and no power could be HPOP related. I'll leave the rest of it for the techs, because right now I'm just guessing and offering possibilities.

You gotta get the codes, and a good scanner that can read p.i.d.s, then we can go from there.

The 6.0s dont run good if the batteries arent in tip top shape sounds just like what my dads did when he needed new batteries from draining them to start in cold weather. I would check the batteries cause his also had codes cause the computer doesnt run well on low power. Just an idea? Hope you get her fixed!!

Your truck needs to have the FICM replaced, based on those DTCs with 100% certainty. Better have it done soon before it leaves you stranded on the side of the road.

The cost of the part itself is quite pricey. The labour to install it, shouldn't be too much. It does need to be programmed at the dealership with the IDS though, so you're pretty much stuck having to get it replaced at the dealer. Supply of FICMs appear to be scarce these days too, due to the recent high rate of failure these days.
