7.3 with no power!

Hey guys, I have two work truck's both 01 F350's with 7.3's, with auto's. Both of them have about 120k on them. My problem is, one of them runs like a raped ape and the other one is a turd!! I pull about 20k with them and the one acts like there is nothing behind it and the other can barley get out of it's own way! I service them every 4 to 5K, I have checked for air leaks, i can hear the turbo spool up, and now I'm not sure what it could be. Both trucks are stock. Any help would be great!!

my best advise would be to get the truck tested. buzz test, cylinder contribution test. That will get you going in the right direction as to what is goin on.

I live in eastern iowa, 25 min west of Iowa City. Not sure what its runing for fuel pressure, and it just had all the filters changed. We have had the truck for prolly two years, and it's allways ran like this. It get's drivin every day, so its not like its so bad that it can't go down the road. I just don't understand why the two trucks are like night and day.

I have put a programer in both of them. The one run's even harder than it allready does, so i took it back out because it dosn't need it. When I put it in the turd it runs a little better, but not as good as the other at stock!
