the truck seems to be running fine though, if the head gasket was blown would it be lacking power?

I can only speak for my 6.0. I blew mine pulling my camper, pulled over flashed back to stock then finished my trip to TS. I drove easy and kept boost low but I couldnt really tell any power difference. Stock is to slow anyway. So it is a possibility that is your problem.

Did you like going to TS? I work in Somerset one day a week and was thinking about taking a ride over to bowling green.

From what I can remember. Good times. My wife and I kinda let loose since it was the first time going anywhere without our son.
