Sounds like a cold start calibration from Tom with a little leaner crank fuel would help. Don't forget that holding the accelerator pedal to the floor during cranking will turn off the fuel. It the car does not start after the normal 3rd attempt, hold the pedal to the floor while cranking for 8 seconds. If it does fire during this clean out, make sure you take your foot off the pedal IMMEDIATELY to get fuel injected to have a chance at starting again.
