Re: did i do okay buying my firstpowerstroke?
Sounds like you got a great deal! The starting issue could be the glow plugs, I would try jumping the glow plug relay (just a regular solenoid) before you go to start it jump the glow plug relay for about 10 seconds and see if that helps it start. If it does replace the relay, if not I would look into it a little further. That relay seems to be a common problem, but diagnosing a hard starting issue is a little more work due to the injectors being fired off of high pressure oil.
If you are looking for more power I would look into a TS 6 position chip tuned by one of the vendors here, a few good ones are Tony Wildman, Matt @ Gearhead automotive, swamps, beans, etc. Ditch the propane injection, if set up incorrectly it can cause major problems. Depending on your financial situation I would look at getting your injectors built, Jim @ Rosewood is awesome and his prices are very fair! 160cc is a very good injector for a relatively stock truck.
