Angry idling issues

i have an early build 99 fps (built before 12/98) and recently experiencing rough idling. had and injector shop run diag on it and they said idm module was going. original idm is '110' - rcvd a rebuilt idm from internet which was a idm 120. called company purchased from, they said they are 'all' interchangable. my local ford parts store said they couldn't cross ref. the two part numbers-said the 'engineering' might be different on the two since my motor was early build. i installed the idm 120, still having issues with rough idle. clears up around 1200 rpm. anyone know about idm's? would idm cause this issue? am i chasing the right culprit? help. thanks!!

i hope i am posting this in the appropriate place - i'm a newbie (and damn proud of it)

i have heard of the same problems and i was told that they changed the ipr which is injection pressure regulator or icp something of that nature. maybe that will help. other then that not quite sure what is wrong.

THE BD IS EITHER FROM OR BEFORE 12-7-98 AND NEVER HEARD OF IDM FOR ROUGH IDLE AND USING THE WRONG IDM MIGHT SET A CEL

CHECK UNDER VALVE COVER WIRING AND CONNECTORS FOR LOOSE CONNECTIONS VERY COMMON, OIL LEVEL LOW OR POOR OIL QUALITY,INJECTORS,LOW FUEL PRESSURE

cel is not on. i bought a code checker and it throws out a lean mixture code. nothing else. i haven't had my cam sensor replaced yet. if that sensor is going out, would it cause rough idling?
