Hi Brian
This sounds like a turbo boost issue .
do you have a good shop that can test this for you .
If turbo checks out good then you need to be hooked up to a Mitsubishi level scan tool and test the injector pump .
Check for codes even if the check engine light is not on would not be the first time i've found code causing this issue and also found a faulty ECM so all these possibility's need checking .
Most common issue for this is the turbo boost sensor .
Still need help then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.

Hi Brian . Also been away with the flu just starting to get better. So i'm also sorry :-). Yes depending on the problem with the turbo .sized etc . I would first check the glow plug system ,may have a few bad glow plugs normally a good sign of bad plugs is when it does start when cold you may have grey smoke come out the exhaust a few seconds or more .
