'03 6.0L No Power when cold only

I have a 2003 6.0L PSD that has no power when cold. Starts fine at all temps, and runs fine the rest of the day after warm up. Plugging the block heater in eliminates the problem. Your thoughts?

Maybe injector stiction?

What oil are you using (brand and weight)?
How long since the oil was changed?
How long since the filter was changed?
OEM filter and filter cap?
