2000 7.3L just shuts down

I have a 2000 7.3L every once in a while it just dies thought it was the cam censor at first but replaced that and it still does it. Usually it dies at idle but the other day I got into it as i pulled out in traffic and it died but then took off like it ran out of fuel. Sometimes it will not want to start but if you cycle the fuel pump a few times it will start(maybe a coincidence?). Any suggestions? The truck has 4" mbrp exhaust, afe cold air intake, and a 6 position tuner that i am not sure what it is but i keep it on the low settings to be safe figured i would have it reprogrammed after i get injectors and fuel system.

Your fuel pump is probably going bad. Go cycle the key and see if u can hear the fuel pump buzz everytime you cycle.

I have cycled it several times and it does buzz everytime i cycle it. I saw somewhere about the tanks delaminating is that true should I check the inside of tank and i was thinking about a complete new fuel system and injectors nothing crazy just enough to get better fuel mileage and a little more power so i can outrun my buddies duramax that is stock with an edge tuner.

Hmm i have never heard of tanks delaminating but i suppose its possible. maybe you have sediment buildup right where the fuel pump sucks up and depending on where and how you park and drive its clogging

No idea on that either, id imagine a super duty is the best parts you can get but maybe the ford lightning being a speed truck it has a better one. worth looking into. someone else should chime in with more info
