95 7.3l won't idle, will rev.

So, my truck has been pretty good to me since getting it in march, besides having to put a transmission in it..

Anyways, driving home the other night and it started to buck and stalled out on me a few times before having to take a ride on the tow truck.

I've cleaned the IPR screen it was full of black rubberish stuff, now the truck will start and idle for about 5 seconds, after that if you don't start giving it throttle it dies. The Crank sensor seems to be good, the tach moves when it cranks, The WTS light comes on for the normal amount of time (considering its cold out). I've done an ohm check of the harness from where the IDM plugs into it and it came out to within spec. 3.4 for most of the circuits. Fuse #22 is not blown.

Fuel pressure from the Schrader valve is right about 50 when cranking, and 60-70ish when revving it to keep it running. I've also unplugged the ICP sensor(sensor with 3 wires on the front drivers side head oil rail?) and there's no change.

What else is could this be? It's really urgent since I start a new job next week and have to go 30miles everyday to and from work.
