2006 6.0 Stroker bogging down

What would cause a 6.0 to bog down from 60 to 20 in a 1/8mile distance. It is in a 2006 E-350 ambulance. The reason I ask here is because it is one of my g-pa's in the agency. It will be fine then just start bogging down even with no auxilery power or LnS running.

Thanks for the help.

Injectors maybe?

What are the 60 and 20 referring to?

I think its from the bowtie on the front. Buy one with a blue oval. You shouldn't have anymore problems.

It has a blue oval. Notice i said E-350 and Stroker. Not Duramax. It it had the D-max there wouldn't be anything wrong with it. HAHA j/K

I know on our '05 we had the turbo replaced because it kept getting soot built up in the vanes. It made a huge difference in the way the truck ran. If not that my next guess would be injectors.

That's what I was wondering. That's a quick deceleration. Sometimes I wish I could get my truck to do that without hitting the brakes when I'm towing my tractor.

When you saying "bogging down", are you still on the throttle or is it coasting?
