[200q20v] Slow cold starting

Here's the newest problem:

My mechanic and I have run every possible test, and replaced every
suspicious part prior to my "chipping" the ECU. One problem remains.

When cold, the engine cranks for several seconds before firing, and when it
does, I notice some bluish smoke for a few seconds in the exhaust. At
present, I have run two treatments of Lubro Moly valve and injector cleaner,
but this doesn't seem to help. Have any of you dealt with this problem?
Should I try replacing the injectors, (90K miles), or do you think I should
suspect something in the PCV area?
Suffice it to say, the car has new ignition wires, rotor, plugs and starter
Because of the blue smoke I wonder if oil is leaking somewhere.

Thanks in advance for your input. BTW, as I am about to Hoppenize the
engine, should I consider replacing the injectors with non OEM ones??
