A quick followup... When it doesn't start, the engine cranks and tries 
to turn over (sounds like it's going to catch once durring a 6 or 7 
second crank) but doesnt.

I've unplugged the mfts and tried to start. I've also tried jumpering 
the fp relay for 15 seconds to try to build up fuel pressure before 
starting, but that didn't help either. It just cranks. FP is loud but 
the archives tell me that's normal (it tells me that it's running).
