I've had a similar warm start problem before, and in 2 cases it turned out to be the ignition switch.  Check that out before you start doing fuel pressure tests, etc.

Hey all-

I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts on a hard start when warm might
be?  Once the car has been run and is at operating temp, if I shut it down, and
then go to restart soon after (a few seconds to a few minutes) the car fires
right away, but then immediately dies.  To get it to run, I need to give it a
little gas as I crank.

Wondering if this might be related to hi HC's at idle.
