Engine has a miss to it

Lately when ever my truck has been sitting for a extended period like over night or at work it will crank and run fine but when you get to about half throtle it starts to missing almost like a rev limiter is kicking in. After its warmed up(10min) it runs like a champ? If I had a bad injector wouldnt it do it all the time? Any ideas???
No check engine lights are on either

Sounds like my truck. And yes I had Ford re-flash it. If anything it has gotten worse and takes longer to warm up since the re-flash. I should have left well enough alone.......

Check each injector plug in wires for a loose one/ not fully seating. This can cause an intermittant miss.
