winter diesel is not spectacular performance wise, its similar to the diference between regular and premium gas in your sports car.

oh no, should not be that bad. winter just might make 4th feel like 5th gear feels in the summer, you might have some other issue.

give us some more details.......foot to the floor and still creeps? black smoke? white smoke, no smoke? all of a sudden takes off? is it warming up to proper temps on the guage? 0-60 used to be 10 seconds and now its 25?

No do not put cardboard ..you already have a winter front...Do you have a CAT ? could be plugged.... also what is your fuel pressure ? might be low ....Did you check the FPR screen ? it could be full of crap... What about the fuel filter? have you changed it ? Also when was the last time you checked the air filter ? It would be a good time to Upgrade the Intake ....Also get rid of the Stock POS downpipe......

It is a screen on the Fuel Pressure Regulator on the inside of the filterbowl...If it is clogged full of crap it reduces fuel flow.....Did you check your fuel pressure ?

Sounds like you have a weak fuel pump.....You don't need the heater....find out what your fuel pressure is...it should be 50-65...
