Harder to start

I recently put a 3" down pipe on my 97 F250, when I went to start the truck it took several cranks before it started, I notice the fuel filter light was on when trying to start it, so I changed the filter I notice a lot of gray like dirt in the filter canister, I also took the canister off and cleaned it all out, It still cranks a lot before starting in the past it started right up, I don't drive this truck everyday it has been siiting about a week before I had this problem, the fuel pump is only about one year old, is there a fuel pressure problem?

Thanks dboo

I had the same problem. It ended up being the glow plug relay
