no mine ran great once you gave it some throttle, just bad idle, you might get someone with good analyzer equipment to look at it. My EGR valve was replaced but was opening normally to 30% then slamming open the rest of the way and sticking open, made it pulse and bog down.....worth checking into. Have you checked into changing the throttle position sensor, you would have to change the entire throttle body because Ford changed it.
