06 6.0 hard start/no start

Hi All,
New to the site and looking for a little direction.
I have an 06 6.0 with just short of 100K miles. Recently it has been taking about 5 seconds to fire. I replaced the bad ficm about 3 weeks ago which helped the rough idle at start, but no help with the slow start. I also changed both fuel filters and had the truck serviced two days ago.
I made a 400 mile trip yesterday with no issues other than the initial slow start. after the truck was warmed up it seemed to start a little faster,

Wife ran up to the store today and when she came out, first time ever... No start. I called for the hook. When I got to the store I tried to start the truck and it would crank but no start. After 30 minutes of waiting for the tow truck I tried it again and it cranked for 5-7 seconds and it did start although it kind of stumbled a little when it first fired.

I went ahead and had it towed home and dropped. It again started with the stumble when it fired and I pulled it in the shop. Even though there was no Check engine lights I threw the scanner on it and it has 0 codes.

So the short of it is I am looking for a little direction on where to start looking.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked your ICP same thing happened to me Friday it was only builing around 300psi when hot but cold it would hit that 500 but after about 15 seconds of cranking. Just a place to start.
