That is too low. I don't know if it will help the romping or not, but the relay it probably on its way out. I would change it out so you don't get stuck somewhere. They are a real PITA to start without GPs at 20º. It will do it, if your injectors are healthy, but it will take a while.
As far as the romping itself goes, I wouldn't worry about it. It won't wash down your cyls. Romping is related to an injector not firing completely (because the oil can't get to the #8 injector quick enough to give it a complete stroke when it is cold, thick, and slow moving). Navistar calls the romps "a characteristic of the motor". If it bothers you, I hear switching to 5w40 helps a ton.
I can't imagine we'd be welcome at hooters very long if there was a bunch of half drunk guys in the back sitting around whistling and humming trying to make the perfect 7.3 turbo noise...
