7.3 Cold Start Problems

Hi everyone,

New here and hope someone can help me figure out why I am having cold start problems with my 7.3's. Seems like once it gets under 50 degrees I have to plug in 2 of my trucks just to get them start. Since I run a landscaping business it is a big problem if someone forgets to plug them in. One has 175K miles and the other 250K.

Glow plug realy is where i would start looking.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.
