Exclamation Random stalling from 6.0

Okay, get ready for a long post lol! I have a 2006 f250, I love the truck and it's a blast to drive when it's running right. It's was studded sometime before I bought it with a new ficm.. A dorman ficm. (Actually tore it apart this morning just to look it over is how I found out). Voltage is good, done the bubble test, battery's tested good.
When I done the egr delete, I also replaced oil cooler, Icp sensor, Ipr, crank and cam sensor. Upgraded the turbo to a barder stage 2.5. Sounds awesome by the way. Has a 4" straight pipe, s&b cold air intake, added a oil bypass and coolant filtration kit to it as well... Now here's my problem. This started before I tore into the truck and continues to get worse. Oil pressure is around 585-605 with an Ipr at 24%. once it has been running awhile. (At idle) it'll start missing, sometimes it'll almost stall and the glow plug light will come on but stay running. Then Battery voltage drops at this time because now the glow plugs are cycling. It's like you just turned the key back on to start it. Kill it, restarts just fine. That's how it started out

Now that the sun is cranking out the heat, I can not drive this across town without it stalling or almost stalling. Throw it in neutral and it'll fire back up then die. I will have to repeat this many times untill I get to work. It's becoming a hazard, if I'm on the highway it does fine unless you kill it or let it sit idling. Then back to stalling Betsy again. I'm thinking about removing the fuel tank tomorrow just to see if it's slowly clogging up. Might pull the hfcm tomorrow as well. I pulled every wire and checked every ground to no luck. If any of you guys have any advice. I'll appreciate it.

IMO I would first load test each battery individually and then have the alternator tested. Then have it checked for codes. Also, I am not a big fan of Dorman FICMs. The injector diagnosis might be because gf a bad FICM.

Battery's tested good but needs charged, alternator is good, i never bought anything from dorman so it'll be getting replaced with a bpd either way.

So I pulled the fuel tank, found a little piece of aluminum foil in it and the under side of like a bottle cap that's suppose to help it seal. I have no idea if that'll cause it to stall but tomorrow I'm pulling the HFCM to see if it's clean or not

I doubt it there is a screen in the bottom of the sending unit so it would have to block it. Do you have a SG2 so you can get more info. You may have a short somewhere when my truck broke down and I pulled the ICP connector to get to my destination it stalled several times. The IPR pigtail was bad and was shorting shutting the engine down. I'm also in agreement with Bismic you may have a FICM issue.

Im no 6.0L expert but, I work test batteries and alternator as Bismic said. The first thing that I can think of is the FICM. What is the mileage of the truck? I would not expect to only loose 4 injectors at once. One ok I buy it, all of them again I buy it. ( must note: if you have codes for all 8 injectors that is a 99.999999% sign you have lost the FICM).
