Diesel Performance Shops in St. Louis?

I have a 06 6.0. I like the truck so far, but I'm having some issues with it. I have it plugged in at night, and it either starts really rough and it takes a few times for it to actually stay running. Or like this morning it will start, then die, and then thats been it all day. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me, or knew of a good diesel shop in St. Louis. Thanks!

The only big and good diesel shop I know of is St. Joe Diesel Performance, but it's on the other side of the state...

I would check the FICM voltage and see what readings you get. Pretty easy to do yourself and it is pretty common on a 6.0.

Truck started first time this morning like there was nothing wrong. The only difference has been the temp, it was 12 yesterday and its 38 today. What single componet can I contribute the non start to yesterday? The ficm is reading 47.59 volts. From my understanding, anywhere around 48 is good? The only thing I can think of now is the glow plugs arent getting hot enough. What do you guys think about that?

APPRECIATE IT!!

Pur performance in St. Charles is a full service performance shop. I picked my SCT tuner up from them, but that's the limit of my interaction. May be worth a phone call. Ive read good reviews for them.
