96 7.3 powerstroke - no power

I have a 96 international tow truck with a 7.3 powerstroke and it has no power.
It's not the turbo - could it be the injectors? What should I check? Help!

Yeah, without some more info it's going to be really hard to diagnose.

How do you know it's not the turbo? Actually better question is how do you know it's not a boost issue? Without a scan tool to see what the PCM is seeing for boost it's hard to say.

It had decent power and has gotten worse? How are you determining it has less power?

A T444 has much less HP then a 7.3 right off the bat. A few things that should be checked are base fuel pressure and boost readings. Without some more info this is just going to turn into a big guessing game.
