at my witts end!!!!

i have an 04 F250 6.0. had it 2 years now. when i got the truck off a dodge dealer it had 42k on it. it was driven by a ford rep first. then a doctor got it and ended up going on a mission overseas and in those years it was sitting not being ran. he went on a mission over seas i think.
anyway. it was doin great for the first year then had to put in the ford shop and that cost me about $1000. cant remember what they did to it but it wudnt start, just crank. well recently it started idoling ruff and throttle surging. put an EGR delete kit on it. still did it. Replaced fuel filters. replaced the EBT sensor and cleaned the tube to it out. still doing it. replaced the injector that tested bad, twice. tested the fuel filter and it showed 58psi i believe. i dont think or know if it has anything to do with the FICM because it doesnt stall or have a problem cold starting or starting period. if anyone can shed some light on anything it will help. thank you............matt

Do you have any codes? Do you have a monitor? Guages?

By the way, the EGR Delete wouldn't have done anything for the idle.

So what's the problem? It just cranks? Any smoke out of the exhaust while cranking?
