any advice would be great

i have a 06 6.0 and it has a severe cold start and it runs extremely bad until it gets all the way to operating temp and then it still misses bad. so i figured it was the injectors well i checked all of them with a balloon and no air came through either line. i replaced the ficum about two years ago and dont know if it would go bad again i guess any thing is possible. i did check the harness for chaffed wires but i have found any yet i'm gonna look closer tonight but i figure they would be pretty obvious. i had it flashed early last summer and i know it had some dtc's about low injector circuits i just dont want to replace it again if its not that. it runs much better when i have the programmer on a hot custom tune but it still misses some i dont know if that makes a diffence or not. i took the egr valve out and it was horribly gunked up but i'm putting a delete kit on any ways and i dont think it would cause the problem i am having. any help would be appreciated very much i know there are some very knowledgeable people on here i stay on this forum all the time just reading

I'm not a mechanic but when I had a bad glow pug mine smoked a lot more than normal when cold. When I had 3 injectors fail mine didn't smoke any which told me it wasn't getting any fuel. Just a personal experience I thought I would pass on.

My truck wouldn't even fire if it was cold out. It was the FICM. Heres how you test it.

Fuel Press Don't know why it says Fuel Press, but this should help.
