6.0 issues with TPS

I have a 03 f350 with the 6.0, I have replaced my TPS multiple times since 12/2012 I also replaced the FICM and my truck keeps throwing a check engine light for the TPS also since I replaced the FICM when I am driving and holding the same speed the RPM's go up and drop like I was letting off the pedal and pushing it again. what could it be now??? any suggestions??

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the TPS was taken out of the strategy back around 05. I have an 03 and have completely removed my throttle body, put on an 05 and later intake elbow and it never through a code.

what is the exact code? 03s have a dummy throttle body with no throttle plate in it. The plugs are there but they don't connect to anything. The EGR emissions requirement wasn't mandatory until 04. Before then no throttle plate was necessary because there was no specified amount of EGR flow.
