Sounds like you have an high pressure oil leak going on. Of course, codes would help with this. I'm assuming you probably had a p1211 ICP above below desired. Some things that can cause this is poor low oil supply, HPOP, IPR, ICP, or injector o-ring issues. It could be mis-diagnosed as a HPOP, ICP, or IPR issue, but I don't think that's your problem.
It sounds to me like you have an injector o-ring that's leaking off high pressure oil pressure, or as Ford calls it, ICP(injection control pressure). With a good scan tool you could tell this by monitering ICP pressure when you're having the issue. The code is probably logging when you try and pass someone because your flooring it, and it's calling for a high amount of ICP. Seeing as something is leaking off it can't keep up with ICP demands. This is also probably causing your hard start issues. As the oil heats up and thins out, it's bleeding off at a higher rate and the HPOP can't overcome the leak. If you let it cool down and the oil thickens up, the leak isn't as bad and it will start.
Have someone check your codes and record them, and moniter ICP pressure during cranking when it won't start. You need 500 psi for it to start. I'll bet this is where you find the issue.
