It says code p2463 and p1431 or p1451 diesel part soot something
P2463 - Soot Accumulation High
P1431 - fuel level sender performance?????
P1451 - diesel Particulate Filter System Performance

You are running a chip with the DPF still intact. Unless you are using it solely for gauges this is a POOR idea and will lead to bread downs that you mentioned you'd like to avoid. The two codes you have for the DPF are telling you that it is clogged up and you'll be loosing power toot sweet if you aren't already because you'll be in limp mode. 1451 code will cause it on its own. You chipped the truck already so you don't have a warranty, I'd suggest getting your hands on some sims and dropping that DPF all together.

Mine had the same problem. Started with losing power, then mpg, then jerking big time. Took 10 minutes to go half a mile. I just bought the truck and they told me that it was clogged b/c it had regular diesel run through it and not ultra low sulfur diesel. (I didn't know there was any other kind available anymore than ultra low). After 3 weeks in the shop it got a new turbo. :banghead:
