the idm is tested with the buzz test , as far as low on power , it can be several things ,first get it on a scanner with someone that knows what to look for , see if its leaving any codes ,monitor data,check exhaust
back pressr valve for correct operation or just unplug it in front of pedestal 2 wire connector and see if that makes a difference

How about...

Are your hubs unlocked? Have you changed your tires and are they properly inflated? Locked hubs and low tires drop my mpg by about 3 easily.

the exhaust back pressure valve is the one by the thermostat housing correct with the tube that goes down to the passenger manifold?

it depends... if you can find a diesel shop it would most likely be cheaper then ford, but anywhere from 50-150
