Bull$&|+!!! It probably is a function of the CIS K-jet fuel system, but
the intake tract length is not the culprit. My 5KCSTQ with efi starts
within the first revolution every time (when I have it calibrated
correctly) because it has the right fuel amount to go with the air going
into the combustion chamber. If it occasionally doesn't start right, I
simply have to tweek the fuel values a little more to get the right amount
for that particular set of conditions.

The ISV also acted funny on my car before I installed the efi, and it
cleared up after I installed the efi. I suspect that the ISV takes alot
of bum wraps when the CIS is generally the culprit.

That might help a little.

Could be also.
