Default loss of power in 6.0L

Get this...when driving in my truck and I floor it the volts drop from 14.5 to 11 and the engine loses a ton of power too. If i back off about 1/2 way the volts jump back up along with the engine power. I checked the belt and its ok. Any ideas?

Yeah the aftermarket alternator could be the problem.

You could have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor).

Either that, or the General gave you an extra strong dose of Torque Management. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Mad]" src="gr_images/icons/mad.gif" />

I think I would have a shop check it out.

OK fuel filter changed and alternator back to stock. Volts dont drop now and doesnt bog as bad but it still feels extremely restricted. Kinda like a clogged shop vac hose. Any more ideas?
