How many miles on it?


Has the vehicle been tuned up since 2004? Take it to a place like autozone and see if any codes have been set. Hard cold starting is usually a sign the vehicle may need a tune-up. When the wheel is turned the power steering pump exerts a load on the engine which could cause misfiring engine to stall. Get an HEI spark tester and test each spark plug wire for "fire". They're only about 15 bucks. You certainly have eliminated a lot of causes by throwing parts at it.

Oj is right, need to know if there are any codes. The evaporative emissions system can also cause a similar set of concerns. If the engine is ingesting fuel vapors at stop or on initial startup it will cause it to stall. I've put a lot of vapor management valves on Fords due to them sticking open intermittently.

Could be the gummed up cam phaser issue also.
