Yup.  Enrichment is not uniform across cylinders.

Some people have had some success with _additional_ injectors or
cold start valves mounted such that all cylinders are addressed - e.g.,
right behind the throttle body.

I refer you to the literature.  There's a fair bit of it about.  The 
last portion of the Probst/Bentley FI manual, for instance.
