Seems like not getting enough fuel?

I don't really know where to start on this one. I have a few issues on the truck but kinda lost as to where to start.

The transmission is one, trying to talk with john woods on that issue.

The next seems to be engine or fuel related. I have a tony wildman chip all the upgrades below, going on about 286K miles now. I changed out the ICP sensor and had no change. my truck just doesnt seem to be getting enough fuel anymore... it seems to be around the top end more that i notice it, but i can hardly make it smoke anymore at all. i know winter time is different with fuels and the cold air. but as i start to hit the top end i get a lot of engine knock and just doesnt seem to have the pull it used to. where should i start what should i get to check it out?

Been trying to change out the CPS but for some reason i cannot get the bolt out and it is now rounded off. need time to pull the front end off to get into it and see if i can figure out another way to get it out.

I was having the same problem for about 5k miles and then last week I was pulling a 30' gn from OK to KS and my fuel pump kicked the bucket. New pump installed and it made a world of difference. The engine is much happier now!

Sounds like what I was thinking. Hmmm alright thanks for the help! I will probably try replacing that and see what I get.

Check your fuel pressure

Try opening the filter drain valve with the pump on. If it trickles, you have low pressure, sprays you should be good. I know it's a bit redneck but if you don't have a fuel pressure gauge it's better then nothin.
