97 7.3 sputtering lacks power

Hi this is my first question post hopefully in the right thread ...
I am trying to get opinions on what this may be but when I am driving along and try to floor it the truck sputters a little and lacks power... Almost as if its not getting enough fuel..??? Not really sure just wanted to see if anyone has had a simmilar problem. Thanks

I had a '94 that acted similarly. Found some melted UVC connectors. Replaced harnesses and connectors and it never sputtered on me again... well, at least for a year when injectors started going bad
