Random loss of power

Hey guys, I'm kinda stumped on this one. I have an 08 f250, all deletes, KEM tune, basic stuff. And it's about 20-25 degrees out. I let me truck warm up for a good ten minutes, drove it, parked again, and kept it idling for another good 10 muintes. I started to drive off, and hit some ice, starting spinning, and revved it up a little bit, not high, like 2500-2800 rpm. Then I kept driving, and I noticed my truck got really loud, low pitch, drone kinda loud. I looked and I wasn't making too much boost, like 5-10 when hard on throttle. I immediately thought that one of my boots slipped off.. Well i looked after I parked and all my boots where still intact to the intercooler.. So I have no clue what's going on.. Any clues?

Had a similiar problem yesterday with my truck. I didnt drive it for two weeks and it had got cold (-20C) I had plugged it in for a few hours before starting it. In the cold the exhaust usually has a bit of a rumble until it warms up then it starts to whistle like usual. This time the rumble didnt go away and when driving it made little to no boost. 0 to 5 psi. After driving and with the TC locked I was able to hit 25 psi but still a rumble sound when letting off. Can barely hear turbo. Brought it in the shop today at work and checked the simple things like IC boots and pulled airintake elbow off of turbo and checked the wheel for any damage or rubbing the housing. Doesnt seem to have any issues. Not trying to hijack your thread just chiming in as im facing the same problem by the sounds of things.
