Either the injectors are staying open much too long or you have a plugged fuel return or bad pressure regulator causing very high fuel pressure.

Also, check to make sure the temp sensor in the air horn is connected properly -- if the wires are bad, the ECU "thinks" it's about -60 degrees and will dump huge amounts of fuel down the intake.

You could also have a bad cold start valve or thermo-time switch.
