long cold start, any ideas?

So I live in Florida, when I start the truck for the first time in the day, takes like 8-10 sec of continuous cranking to start, then blows a white cloud out the back. If I shut the truck off right away and start it again while its still cold, starts just fine no smoke. It's only after its been off for like 15+ hours or so. Has new glow plugs, head studs, egr delete, and injectors re-sealed, innovative diesel xtreme x tune..... Any ideas?

This may seem stupid but what's the outside temp the fuel may be gelling and also do you let it go through the glowplug warm up process? Also when's the last time you did fuel filters?

outside temp is normally about 85, yes i let it go through the glow plug warm up process and fuel filters are done every other oil change along with the use of Rev X. In light of recent events, i think it may have something to do with the tune cause i just got a tune from IDP and it was doing it when i was starting it for the first time in the day, but when i switched back to a street tune that comes with the programmer to save fuel, it started right up the next day no smoke... i talked to a friend of mine and he says it kinda makes sense since they will advance the timing so far for that much power.
