I was also told that the temperature can play a factor in a tune also

Mine did this for two years until I put the cfm intake couplers in but I cleaned the TB at the same time I did that has not done it in 6 months or so it was a monthly happening and I never really worried about it
The best modifications cannot be seen from the outside.

I work on Fords all day so more than likely i know more about your car than you.

My 04 svt had the same prob I did wires plugs fuel filter and never had it happen again in the last 30000 miles I used all ford parts incl the factory non copper plugs. now if u have a CAI I would try cleaning your mass air sensor I had a Nissan with one and every time it started stalling it was due to the sensor being dirty
