Truck missfires on acceleration and while under load. Spark Plugs replaced - tests ok 
22000 mi Engine would go to limp mode and run rough after trying to briskly accelerate after driving at cruising speed for 2 hours or so. Required a restart. Ford installed an air diverter to the turbo air intake.  
33000 mi Engine would stumble and then go into limp mode. IE rpm would be limited to 45-50 mph. Engine light did not come on this time. New air intake prevents moisture build up (which reduces air flow). Still happens after driving the truck for over 3-5 hours.
