running bad when cold.

I have a 2004 f250 and when I start it in the mornings and start driving it doesn't make any power and won't let go of first gear until it warms up. Any thoughts. By the way it does it even when its not cold outside.

What about the High pressure oil pump?
My business truck is doing the exact same thing as the OP and I have a good FICM.

It could easily be injectors, but I just started thinking what if it's HPOP

I hear there's a computer flash that includes the inductive heating upgrade would that help? Because once it warms up it runs fine.

How bad is it when it's cold?

Mine chugs and smokes blue/ black and won't go anywhere even if I floor it for a good 5-10 min.

I don't think that update will help you if yours is anything like mine!

Mines not that bad it just doesn't really make any power. It doesn't smoke.

No, I would recommend NOT to do that upgrade! If I am correct that is one of the main causes that leads to killing your trucks FICM.

FICMs fail quite often on trucks that don't have inductive heat. They also fail on trucks that do have it. If you have injector problems cold then you really should consider the latest strategy. I went back to a non-heat strategy last winter and it made it 10x more apparent I had failing injectors.
