96 F250 randomly dies, getting P0606 code?

I have a 96 F250 and it will randomly cut out and die when driving down the road, it does this very randomly maybe once a week. It usually is when I'm driving a bit more aggressive but not always.

I have to pull of to the side of the road and it will start no problem. It throws a P0606 code which is a PCM fault code which in the service manual says to address and fix any other DTC codes than if P0606 persists replace PCM. Well its the only code I get so I replaced the PCM and I still have the same problem. Anybody have any ideas?
