Craig, IMO not likely the FF if no hesitation under high fuel useage
conditions.  If rough only on start up, could be a sticky ISV, but I've
never had a problem with the Bosch rotary ISV.  If/when it is idling rough
first pull each injector connector one at a time.  The ones that do not
cause a rougher idle are the cyls causing the trouble.  Do the same thing
with each plug wire.  This should isolate a bad injector or plug and plug
