Sounds like it may be the fuel pressure accumulator.  Have you checked it?

If you lose residual pressure, it takes a few seconds for the pump to
repressurize the system.
Of course a pressure loss could occur elsewhere, ie sticking injector etc,
but retaining enough fuel pressure to start the car is the primary duty of
the accumulator.
