Power Loss?

I've been running a DPF delete and SCT's latest extreme tune... w/ no issues. However today seems to be a different story, there seems to be a loss of power from the truck... no codes, temps, are fine, etc. Could I have blown something off that would have created a loss of power? Is there anything I should be looking for? Everything else is stock, except for tune and pipe.

Is it making boost? Could have blew one of the intercooler hoses off.

As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.

Yeah... it is making boost... under WOT sometimes as high as 46 or 48, according to my Edge gauge. It's making boost; however just feels like the boost isnt making power if that makes sense.

You might....I only had 9500 on mine and I had to have the truck towed in to the shop...not thinking it was the filters....they were so clogged that it would not even start...they changed the filters, and everything is fine.

Where can I get a replacement filter.. I mean I guess it wouldn't hurt. Is this something I can pick up from a auto supply house, what's the p/n?

Would appear my power loss was due to a bad tank o' fuel.
