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!

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.

Some say the "taking of lives" is never justified. It is those who employ others to protect them so that they do not have to face that choice.
