NO not my baby....

I was leaving ther boat launch yesterday going up a little hill and heard what I thought was one of my intake boots blowing off... lost power and barley made it to the top.
I pulled over and looked under the hood but did not see anything??

I limped home under no power and proceeded to check things out.
Found no oil on dipstick. put about 5qts in and test ran today.

Still no power, feels like no boost, but I still have not installed guages yet to tell.
She starts and runs fine at idel but just has no umph...

BTW, I looked in and saw that turbo was still turning just fine as engine was running... what do I look at now?


HELP PLEASE... I need the truck for my job... no truck... = no money

1999 F-350 CrewCab SB 7.3 International
5" Exhaust, Ford Fleet intake (huge)!!!
Map fooler, blow off valve cheeter, Dfuser tuner (looking for a better one..lol)
6" lift, 35" TOYO MT'S on 18" Venti's

Knocking in the front and Smoking out the back!!!

Was the truck blowing lots of smoke when it lost power?
