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.
