There are just so many things that can aaffect performance.
Leaks at the air induction system pipeing. Useually accompanied by a whistleing noise, or a whoooing noise.
2. Anything affecting oil pressure/volume (leaks) etc.
3. Anything affecting fuel pressure/volume. (leaks) etc.
4. Electrical problems in the injection circuit wireing/FICM/PCM
5. Turbo problems
6. Exhaust problems, egr system/back pressure issues etc.

Without a little more info we would just be quessing.

Thanks ppl i will let you know what they say. I just usually have to tell the dealer what it might be for some reason. The last 2 times they acted like there was nothing wrong with my truck until i showed the teck myself about the coolant smell from the vents. I still have a clunck under the truck when i accelerate from a stop and they say its normal. I guess they dont care about warranty work trucks or there customers. Oh well thanks again.

We try!

I am leaning towards FICM failure as you described the truck smoking heavily and misfiring then quitting.

FICM then IPR would be my bets. Hope warranty covers whatever work needs to be done!

News from ford is after ide test number 4 cylinder is 12% low. They needed auth. from me to tear off valve cover and do manual test. Cost is now just shy of 1900.00 if my extended warranty doesn't cover it. I dont know what could cause that or what the worst case scenario would be. Again any input would be greatly welcome. Thanks again every one

Valve cover does not need to come off to do a compression test on a 6.0 litre.

IDS Relative compression test is somewhat spotty, at best.

But it will generally point us in the direction of what cylinder to do a manual compression test on first.
