livewire or .... problems?

Bought the livewire from eric 3 weeks ago with the custom tunes. did the dpf delete. when im running 50 mph and the trans is in od and you lay into it. the truck will pull like expected to about 75 then it is just like some one shuts the fuel off to the engine and then the rpms drop. I noticed it on the extreme street, talkd to eric says it might be the fuel filters (understandable, even tho they were changed last oil change less then 7k miles ago) and to try it on just the regular street tune, but it still does it. Has anyone else had this problem before? I just want a second opinion. Nothing against eric, hes a great guy.

The tunes from Eric pull the fuel. I would change the filters. I dont leave mine in much more than what you have on them now. Plus I have a tank in the bed that goes through a filter before it hits the main tank. Keeps the fuel cleaner.

There is an Air Dog installed on this truck. New filters Air dog and stock.
I just updated the livewire and reinstalled it on the truck at the same time the Air dog was installed. Switch the tunefrom tow to street yesterday and the customer says it is better but still not right. Today I'm going to completely return the vehicle to stock-Reupdate the Livewire-reintall the updated livewire. If this doesn't fix it the customer says he is "over the POS livewire "and to get him a H & S. I'm just not sure if it is the tuner or not.

PS no codes in truck
