Hard starting

Ok help me please, 2000 f-350 crew long box 4x4 with a 6 speed. one owner with 210000 miles nothing had been touched tell just now. It has been getting hard to start for some time and has been smoking after start up,raw diesel and oil smell and a rough idle tell warm then runs great. If plugged in fires right up and runs smooth. Im running 15/40 schafers synthetic blend oil. I'm running a 6 position Bullydog chip with stage two cold air intake, mbrp 5" turbo back exhaust , gtp38r turbo with a non ebpv pedestal. Just installed new injecters o rings and all new ford glow plugs and new relay. What am I missing besides new injectors? The thing is it runs great after its up to temp with no miss and no white smoke...

Thanks ahead of time, I'm about done with her!
Doug

no it dosnt smoke from the oil cap like it would if the rings were gone, not as much as alot of them do anyways. Ive ran the chip for a long time with no problems but I will pull it off and just run with the stock ecm to see if that helps.

That's odd, does it only do it in cold weather?

Maybe a UVCH? And you never know maybe you could of got a faulty GPR considering it fires up if it's plugged in.

The only other thing I can think of to do is run a compression test. Are there any codes?

Rope...re-testthe gpr. Ya, you installed new one ,but maybe you got the wires wrong or relay is bad. THE TRUCKS FINE WHEN PLUGGED IN, so that tells me your gp system isnt right, or the oil is too thick, hence the question...Hows the weather been.

Its not uncommon for members switching from 15/40 to 5w/40syn for the winter, for this reason.
