'06 6.0 running really rough in the morning

I have an '06 6.0 with 160,000miles. Mods include bulletproof EGR and external oil cooler. Flashpac tuner always on economy tune unless towing. 5" straight exhaust. It started a few weeks ago running a little rough in the morning, but cleared up after a few minutes. I just did a fresh oil and filter change and fuel filter change. And now it is running even more rough when cold. It takes 15 min of idoling to get to temp(160 degrees ) before it wants to move. Any thoughts before I take it to the stealer... I mean dealer. Thanks for the help.

This is still a question? Usually it's stiction. Use a good oil since it's an HEUI system.

What I was thinking, just hoping not. Better things to spend money on right now.

I know that's true. But they are very money hungry trucks. Maintenance is expensive on them to begin with. Not trying to be rude, but if you don't need it and can't afford it, you might have to get rid of it.

Probably ought to stick to maintenance advice as opposed to financial advice. You never know when somebody could buy you and give it all away and never miss it.
