    Cranking fuel is usually the issue. You need to adjust your cranking IPW for the bigger injectors.
    Are you having problems with hot starting?

    Let me know if you need some help.

    Most times with the larger injectors you need to drop the IPW for hot starts and raise for cold starts.

    Isn't it normal for E85? Or is it a diffrent problem when it is doing it for hot starts?

    The problem is the car gets too much e85 because of how the IPW is setup for stock injectors and pump gas. So when you add larger injectors and e85 the cranking needs to be adjusted for warm and cold starts.

    My car starts perfect hot or cold now, it was just a matter of adjusting those tables in the rom.
