It sounds like a vacuum leak, or some sort of intermitent connection...but I'm not a "real" mechanic...

Surging at idle ("hunting") on most Fords is a bad idle air control valve or gunk in the throttle body.

Look at my post "The Basics" and run the code check as outlined at www.batauto.com

BTW: Regular Motorcraft plugs listed for this would have been fine. No need to shell out the greenbacks on those expensive plugs
