Default resolved slow starts!

Ever since I completed my swap I've had slow starts. I spent hours testing new fuels line, electric inline lift pump, etc., etc. When I installed the high torque starter, I dropped it cracking the plastic on the solenoid. Nothing appeared broke internally so I glued the plastic back and seemed ok other than slow starts meaning take 4-6 cranks to start. About 6 months ago, the two long starter bolts had become lose and one fell out. . I remove and took to local starter shop. They check it out and said starter was fine replacing the two bolts. Still same issue. Finally starter started dragging. I took it back and they solved the issue. Now the 1.9 starts blistering fast. The other day I checked my fuel mileage and getting 32 mpg around town. Not bad.
