Intermittent power loss on acceleration

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your truck? Engine type?

2016 International Prostar, Maxxforce 13

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your truck yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've disconnected fuel lines used forced air to blow out and inspected fuel, no culprit there. Checked all filters air and fuel , and nothing. Checked air lines no leaks. Inspected waste gate but nothing obvious but not sure

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the truck mechanic to know before I connect you?

Engine line comes on and off but no codes, and have had it connected to several computers and the techs are stumped

Hi there my name is***** would start by checking the powers and grounds going to the ECM to make sure that the ECM is getting good current to it. What I mean by this is load testing using a twin beam headlight or something equivalent right at the chassis connectors on the ECM to make sure that the wiring is sound all the way up to it and able to carry enough power
