Poor acceleration and lots of smoke

Hi everyone, Im sure this has been discussed in the past but can't find the topic.

Its been a while, but Im having another problem with my 04/F250 PSD6.0

Hole shot and acceleration is very sluggish while spitting out alot of smoke.
Once I get moving it runs fine. But it happens everytime I come to a stop and then accelerate.

Had a new Fuel filter installed about 8,000 mile ago.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
