What did I do???

As mentioned in my first post, I just bought my first 2002 F250 PSD and have been very happy with it. This past weekend I towed our boat up to the lake for a bass tournament. On the trip home I was on a very short freeway enterance and had to stomp the throttle to get in front of a big rig. This is the first time since I bought it that I have run the RPM's over 3K, for starters it was a nice black smoke show not to mention the turbo whistle!! BUT most important, this thing now runs like a scalded dog!! Is it just my imagination or did I blow a bunch of power robbing crud out of my motor? What ever happend, I like it even more now
Any reason for the sudden increase in power?
