issue with my powerstroke need help

I have a 2000 F350 7.3 Powerstroke and I'm having a issue with it that im trying to solve and I was hoping you guys on here could be of some help.

The first problem I'm having is when the truck is started after sitting over night or all day it will idle around 1000 rpm and wont go down tell the truck is warmed up all the way or tell i touch the gas peddle.

The second problem I'm having is lost boost. If I start driving my truck before its warmed up all the way my boost comes and go's but once the truck is warmed up 100% the boost is fine.

Ford told me the issue was the back presser control valve and a clogged tube leading to the valve so $100 bucks later i replaced the old valve with a new one and I cleaned out the tube. Well the issue seem to get a litlle better but not by much.

Any help on what to try next or anyone know what the issue is please chim in

Its the EBPV, its normal and fine. You can gut it or wire it open if you dont like it. Problem will go away when it warms up.

You never said that about your temps and about not letting you get over 30 mph... so it is normal minus that junk.. not sure now, mine does it over 30 mph so must be another problem.

Its all good, but the EBPV closing shouldn't stop you from going over 30 or at least it doesn't stop mine... as far as temps I have not ever really looked at my temps while it was on.

Someone will chime in and help ya out more in a few I'm sure.
