Hard Starting, FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I SEE A LOT OF HARD STARTING PROBLEMS ON HERE BUT I RARELY SEE ANYONE SAYING THEY GOT IT FIXED OR WHAT THEY DID. SO HERE IT IS----2001 F450. WHEN I BOUGHT IT IT HAD 213K ON IT, HARD TO START THEN BUT WOULD START. DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH POWER TO GET OUT OF ITS OWN WAY. PUT A COLD AIR INTAKE AND K&N FILTER ON IT ALONG WITH A TS PERFORMANCE 6 POSITION CHIP. REALLY WOKE IT UP AND HELPED WITH THE STARTING PROBLEM. PRETTY HAPPY FOR A WHILE BUT IT GOT HARDER TO START SO I WENT ON HERE AND STARTED LOOKING FOR HELP. I CHANGED THE CPS THE IPR AND MOST EVERY SENSOR YOU COULD NAME, NO HELP. CHECKED THE GLOW PLUGS WHICH WERE FINE BUT FOUND A BAD GLOW PLUG RELAY. REPLACED IT, STILL HARD TO START. GOT TO WHERE I HAD TO PLUG IT UP IN THE SUMMER TO GET IT TO CRANK. WELL IT GOT WINTER (WHICH I AM IN ALABAMA, NOT VERY COLD) AND IT GOT ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO START AND BILLOWED BLACK SMOKE WHEN IT FINALY DID. I THOUGHT MAYBE THE EXHAUST BACK PRESSURE VALVE IN THE TURBO SO I PULLED THE TURBO AND DELETED IT AND WENT THROUGH THE TURBO WHILE IT WAS OFF, PIECE OF JUNK STILL WOULDN'T CRANK. FINALY GAVE UP AND BOUGHT AN AUTO ENGINUITY AND STARTED CHECKING. WELL GUESS WHAT, DID A INJECTOR BUZZ TEST AND I HAD SIX BAD. SO I CALLED UP BEANS DIESEL AND TOLD MATT WHAT I FOUND AND HE SAID HE COULD FIX ME UP SO MY FAT BUTT CRAWLED UP ON THE MOTOR AND PULLED ALL THE INJECTORS AND MY TS CHIP AND SENT TO BEANS. THEY BUILT THEM TO SINGLE SHOT STAGE 1'S AND REBURNT MY CHIP TO WORK WITH THEM. I PUT IN A NEW SET OF GLOW PLUGS (DIDN'T NEED THEM BUT PUT EM IN ANYWAY), A NEW SET OF VALVE COVER GASKETS AND HARNESSES AND THE NEW INJECTORS. FINALLY GOT IT CRANKED AND RAN ENOUGH TO GET THE AIR OUT OF THE SYSTEM AND GUESS WHAT, THIS THING IS A MONSTER, OUGHT TO BE ILLEGAL FOR A F450 SERVICE TRUCK TO BE THIS FAST. CRANKING LIKE A CHAMP IN THE MORNINGS, HAVEN'T EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT PLUGGING IT UP AT NIGHT. EVERYBODY TALKS ALL THE TIME ABOUT GLOW PLUGS BEING A PROBLEM WHICH MAY BE TRUE AT TIMES BUT DIESELS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS WITHOUT GLOW PLUGS AND CRANKED FINE. A WORD OF ADVICE, BUY A AUTO ENGINUITY SCANNER, IT WILL PAY FOR ITSELF IN THE LONG RUN, TALK TO MATT AT BEANS IF YOU HAVE TROUBLES, AND DON'T GIVE UP YOU CAN FIX IT. 260K ON ME NOW TOWING 22K POUNDS ALL THE TIME!!!

First I want to say Thanks! For following-up and letting everybody know the end of your story, too often after someone solves their problem they just stop the discussion and that's no help to others in a similar situation...

BUT, Dude, your posts are So HARD to read!!!! Please, Please, Please, take the CAPS OFF! Learn to make a Paragraph, I've tried to read what's above to see what you ended-up doing to solve your problem but, it's just too difficult to follow
