96 stuttered and died

Ok my truck fired right up in the 26* weather. I let it idle until the glow plugs stopped cycling then took off and I was running it at about 2200 rpm's to try and warm it up, then about a 1/4 mile up the road it started sputtering and died. Wouldn't start back just turn over. I had an issue once with the big fuse linked to the bowl heater blowing so I replaced that and after a few minutes it fired up but was running rough. Got it back home and it seemed to somewhat clear up but still not quite right. In the last 2 years I've replaced the cps, ipr, fuel pump, hoop, injectors, ipr wiring harness, and put a Ts 6 pos chip on. Any ideas?

No check engine light. Filter is good. Fuel psi bounces from 46-58. I fired it up this morning and let it idle and it had a bad lope, a few mins in it stumbled and died. I unplugged my chip and it ran the same so I hooked it back up. But after it died the 1 time it ran rough and little by little cleared up and now its idling like normal.

Could it just be that its so cold and maybe all my gp's aren't heating?

Last weekend from the speedway. I fuel there regularly and haven't had any trouble. The more I read the more I'm starting to think its the injectors showing weakness. something in the solenoid doesn't get a good connection until the oil is thinned out.

crappy injectors wouldnt cause an issue this rough. Yeah a hazed idle and whatnot but it should still run

Although your fuel pressure seems kind of low

I had a the bb mod but it was spiking to about 78psi so I took it out. I replaced one uvch about a year and a half ago so maybe its time to do the other. If I let it warm up it runs fine. I'm stumped.
