After reading all the cold start issues in "cold" temps like 20F, I began worrying buying my 02 F350 and starting in the below zero temps around these parts.
I've had no issues at all so far. It came with a remote starter, and it has a programmed wait of about 40 seconds, and it starts every time, one press, right down to the -5F temps we had last week. Warms up faster at home because I'm plugged in, but had no problems at work where I can't plug in too.
So either the previous owner has done the GPR upgrade (will check today, it's pushing 30 out today) or I just got lucky.
If I don't have the Stancor relay, I'll get one and put it in next time I run to the Auto Hobby Shop.
I'm also thinking about the Riff Raff Regulated Fuel Return mod, to see if it will quiet the idle a little in the neighborhood in the wee hours of my departure.
