Arrow BA Ute lost power on the highway

Phoned Ford and they said it is happening a lot at the moment with the BAs although wouldn't elaberate any further.

Has this happened to anyone else? If so what was the problem?

did it feel like you were down a cylinder or two and the car ran rough... if so this is overboost..... no real fix as far as im aware... ford say they have a fix but am yet to hear of any real success stories.... This happened to me once when it was cold weather... am waiting for winter to see if it happens agagin.
