97 F350 Missing in Cold Weather

I have noticed on the 7.3 that I recently bought, when it is cold in the morning, it seems that when I start to drive at low rpms it seems to have a slight miss until it is warmed up. Is this a result of less backpressure from a straitpipe?

Your truck being straght piped will not ever cause you a problem. You need a scanner to.see whats wrong, but a few things could be, dirty fuel filter, fpr screen dirty, bad injector, bad uvch... You see why you need a scanner
