Injector Control Module replacement

I have an 04 Excursion with a 6.0. This motor has sure been an adventure

The most recent part of the adventure is the replacement of the ICM at 140,000 miles. Since the new ICM has been in place (about a week now) the truck starts almost normally, but something isn't quite right. It also acts strange when accelerating from zero to about 15 mph. It's as if it's running on only 7 cylinders. There also seems to be a power delivery issue. All of this is subtle, but it's as if I'm now driving a different truck; one that doesn't run quite right.

Does the ICM need to be "sync'd" with the main computer, or anything like that? Just fishing for a solution.

All 2003 to 2007 model year F-Series (and E-Series) trucks equipped with the 6.0L diesel use the exact same FICM (same part number from Ford). When replacing with a new FICM from the dealer, it has to be programmed using Ford's IDS scan tool.

Ford Diesel/Senior/Master Tech who placed 2nd overall in Ontario on the Fix-It-Right-First-Visit score for 2010

....who works at a dealership that now employs SOME half decent looking female employees since they overhauled most of the administrative staff

....but STILL loves hot women with big boobies

....and STILL hates working on E-Series with 6.0L
