Thumbs up 6.0 running like a top

Well after dumping a couple grand and too many hours into this puppy, the truck finally runs like new.

I have a '05 with 111k, my troubles started back in the winter when the truck would barely run when cold, it would take about 15 minutes before you could drive it.

I had my friend at the Ford dealer reflash it and it worked...for a while. About a month ago I had a oil leak thanks to the o-rings on the HPOP, fixed that and then the truck started its stumbling and bumbling ways when cold and had a slight miss. I dropped two injectors so we replaced all eight and the truck ran like a top, mileage went from 10.8 to 16.4 and then this past weekend I started the truck and I thought it exploded, black smoke filled the garage and the truck died and would not restart. Tested the FICM and it was gone, replaced it and had it programmed and now the truck runs like new. I was ready to drive it off a cliff but I'm pretty pleased now
