Have the fuel pressure regulator diaphragm checked for leakage.

Pull the vacuum line off of the fuel PSI regulator and see if it is full of fuel. This is one way to see if the regulator diaphragm is leaking. If there is not fuel in the vacuum line, it still could be bad, but I would then check to see if the cold start injector is leaking. Let us know what you find.
