The F350 I wanted looks awesome in my driveway!

I went and did it. I purchased the 2005 F350 4X4 Crew Cab from my buddy, a firefighter. Wife wants to shoot me, but hey, her rage will change when I bring home a 1968 Electra 225 I'll be getting in trade for a 7mm Mauser.

ANYWAY

Couple of questions about the F350

1) I noticed a plug where the "MAF/MAP" should be, but it's not plugged into anything???
2) Before I bought it, a local powerstroke mechanic who works on NOTHING but powerstrokes for the ambulance service did an EGR up-pipe block off, but not an entire deletion, he also replaced the oil cooler, and best or worst of all, brand new head gaskets with ARP studs. Least that's the story. I can tell the heads have been off since I first test-drove it. this thing was PUKING major coolant out of the expansion tank per normal driving and now it's perfectly fine. Or so I think.
My question is this......upon WOT acceleration from a stop, the truck feels like it's sort of "surging" or "cutting out" and sometimes it will do it slightly while at cruising speed, around 2000rpm /55-65 mph. WTF?
Do I need to start shopping for a new turbo? maybe cleaning the VGT solenoid as I've read on my searches?

Truck is all stock, no chip no tunes. The only MOD that I know of is a straight exhaust. Sounds *****in, almost like an jet whizzing a idle.
Ideas? suggestions?
thanks in advance!

Some of the 05s did away with the MAF sensor. That's why you have a plug not plugged into anything.

You get a reach-around with that?

cleaning the turbo prob wouldnt hurt. you could use some inspection mirrors once the dp is unbolted to confirm it before you removed it. any pics of it?
