Whats wrong with my 6.4!?

OK, recently installed H&S tuner with the HD300 tune and a 4" straight pipe exhaust on my 08 6.4. for the first week or so after i did that it was running great, lots of power, great mileage and did everything it should have done. THEN, out of no where its not running right.. very little power/torque, shifts at 2k every gear no matter how much throttle, and when i floor it the turbo spools sky high and the RPMs will just sit a 2k for way longer than it needs to before it shifts. another odd symptom is i get no black smoke when im on the throttle which i did pretty easily before this started happening.

ANY IDEAS ON WHAT COULD BE WRONG WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Have you checked the ebp tube? Those can get frozen or the tube can get dirty and cause all kinds of problems, some of which your describing. Try removing it and cleaning it out
