Exclamation Deployed Troop... Hard Start

Ok so I'm currently deployed to Southwest Asia, and we Have an 01 F350 7.3 having issues. Quite a few people have looked through this and can't figure it out, and i'm running out of options, here's the issue; initially came in for hard start, it's hard starting all times, both cold and hot. Hooked it up to the computer, and I get a code P1298 (IDM Failure). When I run the other test it says cylinder 7 contribution and balance.

Here's what's been replaced:
IDM once
#7 injecter 3 times
#5 injecter 2 times
#3 injecter once
Under valve cover harness once

I'm completly stumped, anyone have any advice?

Update: The new IDM I just put in is part number EM1998S. The official ford number is xc3z 12b599-aa, and the Standard part number is EM1998. Could because of the S in the part number make a difference?
