FYI, a stock '05 thru '09 4.6L typically dynos at about 265 RWHP. The engine is rated 300 at the crank. With a good custom tune and CAI, the NA 4.6L often dynos around 290-295 RWHP.

Go back to the stock tune and injectors and see if the code is repeatable. FWIW, the FRPP injectors are no better than stock and I'm guessing the tune could be your problem. Who's tune is it? ...

I still suspect the TB needs a good cleaning. This would be the most likely reason for your problem but the SeaFoam or Techron is good to do as preventive maintenance regardless.

What you describe seems to be what the TSB relates to. IMO, it can occur if you disturb the cowling such as when you replace the cabin air filter but that's just my theory. Many 05's and 06's came...
