Angry GETTING FED UP!!!

My 6.0 is playing mind games with me...and it's getting old. I have some other posts about this, but here goes. I went and had the FICM re-flashed by the dealer...it runs ALOT different, but I get a little white smoke (only once) and a little hesitation...nothing like before, but it's still there.

Another thing that's still there is actually what started all this...the D*mn random jerks. It was diagnosed as a bad EGR and Map sensor...both have since been replaced, and I've had it re-flashed. The only other things it could be in my mind is the actual FICA (PCM) module being bad, a wacky injector, or something...I DONT KNOW. Any tips??? I'm about to leave the country for a deployment...I'd like to have this fixed before I leave..but I may not have a choice!!

well, my truck acted funny while in cruise on the trip to SSS, for example if i had cruise on and the truck needed to kick down to go to the passing gear it would sputter and kick like a bronc and smoke would come out of the pipe as well until i manually stuck my foot in it to get past that part of the incline.

My mechanic and I are both scratching our heads...he's never seen a PSD do this before...at least not after replacing what's been replaced. And it's all happening at once...weird?
