You can clean the EBP tube and MAP hose/intake fitting.

Here is the 6.0 bible, start with the 2003 and work you way upto 2005.

This first pic is the MAP sensor, has a hose going from it to the intake manifold. The intake fitting and hose can get clogged with soot. The EBP tube will be on the driver side exhaust manifold, the metal tubing going from it to the exhaust manifold can get sooted up. The tube will go to the EBP sensor location will depend which year truck. Early years has sensor mounted to thermostat housing and later years has it below the FICM.
