When's the last time you changed your fuel filter? Start with that. Then check your air filter too.

Basic things you can do is check filters and oil pressure if you have a gauge. Without Ford Scanner there's not much else you can do. To view data while running and getting the trouble codes out is is necessary to use ford scanner.

check aftercooler hoses and change filters after that you need a code reader and some mechanical hard data <fuel pressure and boost pressure> 6.0's do have some issues with fuel pumps and egrs

Filters, egr, ficm, turbo. Or all of the above.

Check for a Ford emblem, that is a very common issue. (Sorry about the crack, hopefully it is something simple).

Is it not making power or is it a possibility the torque converter is slipping (if it's an auto)
