Truck had no power at all!

I got in my truck to run to the local store. The truck was already warmed up. When I pulled out on the street gave it some gas and the truck had hardly no power at all. Got to the station left it running got back in drove down the road alittle to see if it would go back to normal. Drove about 4 miles and the truck still had no power. Put it in nutral while driving shut it off let it coast for a hundred feet or so and then started it back up and floored it belched a huge cloud of BLACK smoke then went back to normal power. Any one had this happen before? Its deff a first for my truck. I was thinking maybee something was clogged or something was blocking a fuel line. Fuel filter has about 6,000 miles on it, Oil is due to be changed, full tank of gas, no CEL or codes.

No joke. I hope erics race tune has enough fuel or I will be switching to spartan. I waited for sct custom tunning to come out and now that is out It wont be much longer till we know wich one is better.

But I dont think it was a tunning issue. Im gona change the filters tommarow just incase.
