6.0L running out of fuel

Got an 07 that I can't quite figure out. Will start and idle good for 5min. Or so, then as soon as you put it under a load for 10sec. It runs out of fuel and dies. Wait about 20sec and it will start right back up.
Fuel tank is clean and lines are clear. Fuel supply pump is brand new and is working properly.
High pressure oil system is checking out ok.
Only thing I have noticed is it has cheap Chinese fuel filters in it and they are clean. In the morning I'm going too install motorcraft fuel filters.
What am I missing??

I Appreciate any help!

Re: 6.0L running out of fuel

Well first step you are taking care of. ONLY use Motorcraft filters (or Racor...same filter). Same applies to your oil filter.

Have you checked fuel pressure?

Figured it out. It was the cheap ass Chinese fuel filters that some one put in it.
It had good fuel pressure until you loaded it up, then it'd slowly run out of fuel and die.
Can't believe some cheap ass fuel filters kicked my ass yesterday, lol.

Can't stress it enough.... ONLY use Motorcraft filters on your 6.0!!!

Not directing this at you op, just making it very clear to anyone else who reads this. For too many issues happen with a 6.0 because people use the wrong filters.
