Starter was turning okay, but probably there wasn't enough voltage left for the spark plugs...
The trick is to fully charge the battery (storage mode isn't enough) just before you start the engine. The battery gets better when it warms up so before cranking you leave the lights on for a while.
I managed to start the engine at low temperature with this procedure. Never had problems at temperatures above 40 degrees Fahrenheit (no special procedure needed) and am very happy with the battery.

Now I need to find out how the LiFe battery would handle the jump starter.
