intermittent missing and sluggish throttle

New to 6.0 but not to diesels. I have done a pretty good bit of searching but can't seem to find what I am looking for. I have an 04 6.0 stock afaik with approx 260k. It ran fine when I bought it about 4 months ago. Recently it has started intermittently idling rough. The rough idle is accompanied by missing and sluggish throttle. I bought a scan gauge 2 and have been monitoring things. While the problem is occuring Ficm voltage never drops below 46.5. Ebp seems higher. Ect and eot delta gets higher but still within 15 degree limit. Icp doesn't respond instantly to throttle like it normally would.

I haven't gotten a chance to check fuel pressure but both fuel filters have been changed within last 2 months and have maybe 1000 miles on them. Last oil change was about 3k ago done by po. The engine never throws cel.

On a side note when I went to change fuel filters I found a plug disconnected just forward of fuel filter in valley pan. The truck was running fine then and I found nothing for it to plug into so I didn't worry about it.

Any ideas on where to start? I have not monitored ipr or egr while it is happening.
