The new filter has a lot of brown stuff in it?

Just a guess, but this may be the cause of your problem.

40 PSI will run the truck, but not under high power demands.

Did someone put a bunch of crap in your tank?

Drop your tank and clean it out. You may need to replace the pump.

You are correct that 2.77 kPa is .40 PSI. I'm not a gasser guy, but that's barely enough pressure to measure, much less run an engine on.

I've seen a few instances where OBD-II readers will read a value and then incorrectly assume a unit of measure. I don't know what the 2.77 represents but I really doubt it is kPa. You need to find a better way to read fuel pressure.

There should be a fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail. There has been on every fuel injected gas engine that I've seen. But like I said, I'm a diesel guy, not a gasser guy.

You might need to go down the forum specific to the engine you are working on. There would be more expertise there.
