Barely running 7.3... Help!!!!

I have 2002 7.3l two nights ago the truck was running fine. I woke up the next morning and it was harder to start than usual, and when i got it started it acted like it wasnt getting fuel. I checked the fuel bowl it fills up relatively quick. When i drove it down the road it has no power and i have to let off the throttle to shift. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!!

you getting any smoke if so what color? have you tried putting the truck in stock programing it could be an issue with you tuner. just a thought something to eliminate as a problem if its not the chip.

If your not giving your all at everything you do your just slowly failing

I'm New here just looking around and seen your issue...sounds like same thing I had happen a year ago, If you can get it running, feel the exhaust manifolds, if one bank is cold. the injector plug on the valve cover gasket may have disconnected. Hope this helps. Their are two plugs one inside and one on outside.
