check the turbo fins for damage, check for leaks, get teh tranny checked by a trusted mechanic. put the oil fill cap upside down on the oil fill and see if it pops off, its a fair indication of blowby. id go with the 7.3 but thats me. check the early 99 section at the top of this page, there is a list of differences i beleive in a sticky.
cold start? how cold? new good batteries, good glows, good relay and a good starter (dbelectrical gear reduction) will go really far. IMHO if its going to get under 10*F pretty consistantly go with a lighter weight oil, 10w30 or something.
