Default Ecoboost stalling on accel issues

New to this forum and new truck owner. Supercrew Lariat with ecoboost.
I had been driving 55 on two lane road for 2 hrs and needed to pass a few cars. Had time, punched it and nothing. The it started shaking violently. After 5 min it was fine. The next time I had the opportunity to pass, it did what it was trained to do. What I paid the extra 1500 for. The next day engine light came on.
I took it in to my friendly service dept and they told me what it was before even looking at it. It was what they thought and it is running fine now.
If you are having this issue and your truck was built before 5/24 /12 this may be your problem.
Here is the service bulletin I was given when I picked the truck up after service.
3.5L GTDI CALIBRATION UPDATE—VARIOUS ISSUES—BUILT ON OR BEFORE 5/24/2012
TSB 12-6-4
FORD:

Some 2011-2012 F-150 vehicles built on or before 5/24/2012 and equipped with a 3.5L gasoline turbocharged direct injection (GTDI) Ecoboost engine exhibit a steady or flashing malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) with various diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) and drivability concerns.

Default same problem

I joined this board for several reasons, but the main reason is b/c of this exact same issue.

Picking my truck up from service dept. tomorrow and frustrated b/c they cant find any issues or codes with the truck. I told them about the TSB and they said " since the VIN doesnt bring up any TSB's or the tech's dont find and or witness anything wrong while the test drive, then it passes" well that makes me a liar then....
My truck has stalled 3 times so far, bought it July 2012 and have now 13,400 miles on it. Not sure what to make or do with this truck... Hell I almost had a head on already cause of the truck shutting down.

I'm reaching for any suggestions...Yes this is my first post here, but have numerous postings on gun/ rifle forums, not some troll like others like to think.

thanks for any suggestions..
