You may have low fuel pressure - you need a fuel pressure gauge (every 6.0L owner does IMO)!
Unfortunately the injectors are highly susceptible to damage when the pressure drops below 45 psig. Your symptoms sound like you have already been bit by low fuel pressure.
Sounds like you have an injector dumping fuel. This needs to be corrected soon. Overfueling can cause even more serious issues.
Make sure you use Motorcraft oil and fuel filters and change them at the recommended intervals. Also, International & Ford came out with an upgrade to the fuel pressure regulator spring which takes care of low fuel pressure in most vehicles. If you haven't done the "blue spring" mod, then you probably should.
Get that injector changed (and if you do have low pressure, you may have issues with more than one injector).
Hopefully you cleaned the EGR valve with carb cleaner and not brake cleaner AND you made sure that you did not get any cleaning fluid in the solenoid. Even if you are careful, the cleaner can "wick" up the valve shaft and soften the seal (which lets carbon into the solenoid).
