Reduced power mode on the highway

My truck keeps going into reduced power mode when im driving on the highway. It only does it when I drive on the highway. If I pull over shut the truck off and turn it back on it goes back to normal. I can drive it for a litte while longer but when I go back on the highway it does it again. It's frustrating to keep pulling over and turning it off.

The only mods are a lift sct volant intake and straight pipe. I thought maybe the problem was the intake because I reset it when I pull over but last time It didnt work. Anybody ever heard of this? Any help would be appreciated.

I have an sct livewire 5 inch flo pro and a volant intake. The intake wants me to reset it all the time and yes it came with a dpf.

I was told by an aftermarket shop near me that they have numerous complaints from similar situations with the sct and 08-10 powerstrokes. Anybody heard of this

Did you just install the sct recently or have you had it installed for awhile and it just started acting up?
