Alright here is the update it was a bad fpr I replaced it with a Bosch and truck is running top top shape. Easiet way I found to get to the fuel pressure regulator was remove the coolant lines ac compressor and where the fprv is located remove the banjo bolt and force gave me plenty of room to get the fpr in and out in a breeze. It took me roughly 2 hours pulling it apart and 2 hours putting it back together.

Hi I'm wondering if I'm having the same problem. 200 rpm higher idle, and loud like its -30....Plus it cycles the Glow plugs every start for about 7-8 seconds just like it was -30. I have no engine lights either. I don't have a way of scanning so I have to go to a shop Thanks

You will have to check the pids with the scan tool to see what it thinks coolant temp, ambient temperature, etc are.
