1999 f-350 loss of power

Hey guys i'm new to this forum and to diesels. I just got my first 7.3 about a month ago and I fell in love. But... about a week ago there was just a sudden loss of power. I got home and shut it off for a while started it up and drove it to my mom and dads with no problem. I went to leave and started up the hill and there was no power to climb it. I even put it in low gear. After it stalled 3 times I finally got it up the hill but it stalled 2 more times. I only live about a mile from my parents. After I replaced the UVCH and the glow plugs and GPR changed all the filters and oil it finally goes but still loses power out of no where. I can turn it off and start it back up and its fine for a little while. When it loses the power though it feels like its not getting fuel even though it has 60psi. I looked at the injectors and sleeves and they looked good. The SES light isnt on. And the tach moves when I start it. Its an easy crank too.it has a little white smoke when I first start it but I found out thats normal. When it loses power though it has alot more white smoke and the exhaust sounds weird and the turbo doesnt spool out but it will get to 2,000 rpm's and no more when I hold the pedal to the floor. I checked the HPOP reservoir and its where it's what I would call full (about a half inch from the top from what I could see.) I greatly appreciate any help I can get. Sorry if theres any more threads that are about this. Lol ive been looking for a week and havent found anything like what i'm having trouble with.
