loss/lack of power...7.3L IDI turbo

Ok so I have searched all over looking for my answer and cant seem to find the right one.

I have a 1994 7.3L IDI Turbo with the E4OD, I just bought it a few days ago and love it so far but I feel it has a big lack of power, also kind of feels like it misfires.

So today i put $20 in my rear tank (Iv run both tanks) and when I left the pump and took a right all of the sudden the truck seemed to come to life like some one turned up a chip. I let off the gas and got on it again and felt great. So i pulled into a parking spot and it was kind of chugging/missng/hard rough idle for a sec and then went back to its gutless self.

it doesnt blow any black smoke, very small ammount of blue when at idle or letting off the gas. has no problems starting cold or hot. It has a a ton of new parts, straight pipe but still has the crappy flat down pipe. what i cant seem to figure out is why I have a lack of power and then today just for a minute it came to life and its back to gutless.

I hope I covered all needed info, any help would be great.

Thanks, Chaz
