Dead pedal going down the highway today

I've been working with Tyrant on tunes that won't throw codes because of the NL stage 2 intake because apparently my truck is a picky bastard. He sent me a test tune last week and all has been well. Tons of power, no check engine lights etc.

A bit ago I was one the way to work down a fairly remote stretch of highway, I decided to lean on it. It was pulling hard when it 100 mph the truck jerked and the pedal went dead. At first I thought maybe he forgot to take off the speed limiter, but the truck was decelerating and the pedal was dead although still running. So I coasted off the road and as soon as I got to about 15-20 mph the truck died. I turned the key off for a few seconds and it fired right up with no CEL. I drove it the remaining 10 or so miles to work with no problems.

I'm lost so any input is appreciated.

Maybe the truck realized how reckless it is to travel over 100mph in a 8,400lb vehicle?

Busy post.

I've had mine up to 109 with no issues. Wonder if you had an air bubble or something come through the fuel system. Or it derated because of EGTs?

Was just kidding mostly, figured I would get more opinions on this site. Turns out I drained my fuel rail...
