bad ficm symptoms but good ficm

i have a 04 f 350 i bought about a month ago and i changed the oil and the fuel filters, i unplugged the battery to clean some corrosion off, since then i have had the rough start and idle like the symptoms of a bad ficm and i had a p0611 ficm code so i took the ficm off and sent it to ficm fixer in texas and they tested it and it tested good with 58 v on cold and 57.5 on crankin and running so i put that back on and i had a bad battery on the passenger side so i replaced both and no change in starting. it is a very rough start and idle till it warms up, lately its been 48f outside so not too cold. I need help guess im furious this happened and i havent had it very long, with no warrenty

Dang Portcity gt beat me . I agree 100%. You will see a big difference with the t6 but Id say check out archoil. Cheaper and do's a great job. (you can tell the portcity is one of those guys with money to burn.....just look at his pic for the love of god.....)

Archoil didnt do a whole lot for me. Revx was night and day difference in smoothness and quietness of the engine... But thats opening a different can of worms lol... OP- you need to get a monitor for your truck, especially if you plan on diagnosing or repairing yourself. There could be more going on than you think. If your truck died once or twice after a cold start you could have a bad hpop, air leak in fuel system, etc.
