01 f550 runs bad and smokes until warmed up

Just gothis truck and replaced all the injectors and tps sensor. It had set up for about 4 years before I got it. Any how it now cranks and runs but has a mIss and smoke issue until it warms up. After it warms up it runs like a champ. Can anybody help with this please. I've put about 160 miles on it.

Where did you get the injectors?? Poor quality injectors can make matters worse.

Milex up by Jackson ms. I have bought several sets from them but that don't mean that's not what it is. Does revx do as good for a 7.3 as for the 6.0?

I've never had to use Rev-X on a 7.3 The poppet valves work differently than the spool valves of the 6.0 but it may help. I would check the glow plug relay and glow plugs and if they're good chances are the injectors are at fault.
