Hello, take a look at the Charge air cooler hoses on the passenger side of the engine near the radiator. There are metal pipes that run to and fro the turbo that the hoses can blow off the CAC cooler up front. If one of the hoses is cut/damaged or blew off then this will cause a major loss of power. Take a good look at the blue CAC and black CAC hoses connections. Reinstall or replace the hoses if needed.

Cac hoses are good n tight
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 9 months ago

Ok if those hoses are intact and it has a major lack of power then something else has to be causing a restriction. The check engine light should be on and setting a trouble code or codes at this point. if not it should have codes stored in memory. A scan tool needs to be used to evaluate the loss of power. I doubt an exhaust pipe got crushed from the tire falling apart but possibly some wiring under the engine bay area. If something is damaged from the tire it should be obvious. Other issues with a lack of power are turbo charger carbon coking and egr valve issues, FICM module and injector issues. All of those will set some sort of diagnostic trouble codes.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
