I had some cold starting issues however they were semi-consistent. I bought a fuel pressure tester ($75-90) and verified my system pressure, lower pressure chambers, etc and found they were at spec.

I found my lambda tower was out of adjustment. It was running very rich (low % numbers) I readjusted it to 45-50% at idle.

It worked like a charm no more starting, stalling, and restarting or needing to push the gas down to keep it running.
