Question 1994 Exploder V6 Pushrod - ????

I have a 1994 Ford Exploder 4.0l V6 Pushrod.
True Dual Exhaust - Dual in/out HiFlow Cat, Dual in/out Flowmaster 40
19lb Inj (stock)
K&N Cold Air Intake
66mm Throttle Body
55mm(stock) Mass Air Flow Sensor
3000cfm E-fan set at 180

I changed: (all has about 400 miles on it right now)
I dropped the tranny pan, fluid/filter, normal for 105,000 miles.
Oil and Filter
Coil Pack
8mm plug wires
Spark plugs

Cold or Warm when in park it Idles just fine @ 950rpm.
Place it in Drive it idles fine @ 500rpm.
Start driving and go over 3000rpm, then stop, keeping it in Drive, the idle moves (sudders) between 400-550rpm.
Now while its doing this if you take your foot off the brake to let it move @ idle,
every time it sudders it tries to stop the forward motion.
Place it back into Park and it goes away...

T-converter trying to lock up?
Bad valve that only shows at low idle?

ive heard of these motors doin that alot, most people find that it is the intake manifold gaskets because its all plastic, so hav a look at them, if not(as much as i hate to say it) go see ur local ford dealer, and pick thier brains
