Default 01 Ram Starting issue

Hey everyone,
I have a 2001 Ram 1500 5.9l that acts like an old carb'd car with a bad choke. It is totally random also.
It will fire right up and run fine sometimes, other times I will have to feather the throttle till it finally will idle on its own in a couple minutes.
Either way it starts, it always runs great after it idles on its own.
Fuel pressure keys on at 48 to 50 psi and runs at 48 to 49 psi .
I have put new plugs wires, cap rotor, new tps, no Vacuum leaks.
I looked down the throttle body no pooled oil, Dirty but no pooled oil.
I am at my wits end with this. Oh temperature outside does not play a factor in whether or not it starts correctly or not.
I appreciate all the help / advice I can get.
