Truck struggles to turn on and stay on.

Today it has been 2 months with my ex minor issues here and there . Newest issue is it struggles to turn on and once on struggles and won't go faster than like 15mph till it fully warms up. Even then after its warmed up I can note a small intermittence as if the engine hesitates for a slight fraction of a second. All suggestions welcome.
Here is a video of it right after its turned on.

X2,

Check the ficm voltage, below 45v and you've got a bad ficm 48v is an ideal voltage.

It's bad. Got out of work and powered up. Programed the pids. And I saw it in the 30s then after a while I went up to 40-48. Guess I need a new one is it hard to install? And which should I get?

It's a piece of cake to install so no worries there. I personally recommend the bulletproof diesel unit but they are kinda pricey. If you need to go the cheaper route ed at ficmrepair.com has a pretty good reputation on here.

Hmm I like the fact that the ones from ficm repair come tuned and a lifetime warranty for half the price sounds good Thanks gonna have to call this dude up.

For sure. And I could be wrong but I think a tune on the ficm costs extra...? On the bpd unit, you can select the voltage as well as a couple other neat features

Yeah its 150 + 425 (ultra) with lifetime warranty that means I'll never have to worry about buying another one. That's good!

Be sure to have your batteries individually tested as well as your alternator. Bad batteries can cause false low voltage ficm readings and cause damage to the ficm.
