my buddy just bought a 99 7.3 f350 2x4 dually with a service bed on it.
crew cab, 6 spd.
i drove it today and to take off in 1 (not low) you had to put the pedal to the floor just to have a hafe way normal take off.

it just feels like it has no power (compared to mine-and mine is a 95 and basicly stock)
the service bed is empty
mine is a 5 spd.

is it just that year model
or what?

I would pull the filter housing and check the turbo wheel for pitting or movement. As mentioned the filter should be replaced if not already new.

How does the clutch feel? Does it feel normal?
