OBS Loads Up And Hard Cold Start

like the title says my obs is always loading up and when its cold it mostly doesnt start without ether. new glow plugs, new glow plug relay, newish injectors, new uvch's, new valve cover gaskets, unplugged exhaust back pressure sensor just a few min ago to see if that makes a difference. when i start it when its cold i have to rev it up to clear it out and it blows a lot of white-ish blue-ish smoke. it also (to me) always smells like ether when its loaded up. when i drive it it kind of seems to chug or lack power until about 2200 rpms. but im not familiar with the 7.3 a whole lot so i really dont know.
