Riskit. I have a 2004 F-250 with 185,000 miles.
I have the same exact problems. I have the Bulletproof EGR delete , SCT tuner, airraid cold air intake and 4" performance exhaust. These upgrades were installed 3 years ago and truck has run like a dream. Last year it failed to start and had to replace the FICM. Truck ran sluggish when I got it back from shop. Plugged in SCT tuner and it would NOT allow me to load tunes. Called SCT service tech , he said the mechanic failed return back to stock before replacing the FICM. Had to mail SCT tuner to manufacturer to be unlocked . Received tuner back a week later , loaded tunes. Within a couple weeks later truck began intermediate problem of missing, hesitation , occasional short acceleration burst and sometimes stalling at low rpms. Always restarts as you described. I think you said you replaced FICM or it had been. Did your truck have tuner when FICM replaced? If so was it returned to stock prior to replacement?
