6.0 vibration head ache!

I've got a 2004 F250 4x4 with the 6.0 diesel 300 000 km. Lately it has developed a nasty vibration. Here's what I've got so far:

Cold starting not a problem, no error codes, idle is steady, vibration is most noticeable @ about 1500 rpm and is at its worse when cruising at 80 kph, vibration is less noticeable when in tow/haul mode, doesn't matter whether engine is hot or cold.

I replaced a bad FICM and the situation slightly improved.

Any suggestions?

What are you using for a code reader? Some generic ones won't pick up codes that you want to see. My gut says you might have an injector issue...this is where a good code reader will help. A dealership or a shop that works on diesels might need to assist you.

I think it is an injector, but was hoping something more simply replaced might be the culprit.

Thanks for the suggestions folks. Off to the dealer now to see what they can "read."

If they happened to tell you, you need a new ficm, go with Ed at http://ficmrepair.com/. He is the best guy for these things. Also make sure your batteries and alternator/charging system are good. Your ficm is finicky with incoming voltage.
