do you have a monitor system? cheapest route but still very effective is a scan gauge 2 bulletproofdiesel sells one with the 6.0's programs already installed.

you wanna check your:
icp reading
ipr reading
ficom volts
ficm sync that will get you to a really good start also most autozone's sell the scan gauge 2 unless you have something other then a normal ombd2 reader...

I will but I dont think its the glow plugs I think it is the fuel draining back down to the lower filter from an air leak

Well this might not help but the other day I was looking at an 03 6.0 long crank issue had a ford oil filter in it but a napa cap which is taller and dosent seat the filter properly to allow it to hold oil pressure, changed cap to factory ford style and all fixed, just something to look at

The different cap would be my guess, wix/napa cap with a factory filter.

Sounds like air in the fuel system. Are the caps tight? Did you use the drain on the frame mounted filter? Is the drain tight?

you need a monitor to check your icp and ipr readings. that will help you tremendously with diagnosing the problem.
