FICM or something else??

I just started having an issue with this, and ive done some reading around and now im thoroughly confused. I just finished putting the blue spring upgrade in my 6.0 last week and now im having long starts, it will take about 5sec until she fires up. Im having no issues with it running what so ever and once it starts everything is fine. Its just taking alot longer to start than it used to and the only thing i changed was the blue spring... IM LOST! anyone please shed some light on this issue

Subscribed. Same issue after several mods. Wasn't sure what caused it. Since it runs fine, I just deal with the longer crank times. If you figure out why, keep me updated.
