My truck has been starting good and running pretty good but dies at times and I have to floor it to get

When you press all the way down on the gas its going into clear flood mode and it prevents the injectors from opening. I would say either one of the two injectors are bad or the fuel pressure regulator ruptured. Im pretty sure the regulator is "kinda" inside the throttle body. If that's the case I would bet that's it. Have someone turn the key on with the air filter of and look at the injectors.
