Have you checked the Cat converter. I found mine to be plugged solid, and when I removed it, she runs like a dream now. My F150 doesn't need Aircare, so I dont need a cat either.

Will it idle, or does it "surge" under load. Any funny looking smoke or smell. (white,blue, black) ?

Did you check pull the distributor and check the timing gear and weights under the rotor ? I've seen it where the gear is split. You changed the module right.
