Anyway as the title says I'm experiencing a longer than normal cranking period the very first start of the day. After that initial long start it starts normally through the day. What I mean by long crank is the engine turns over approximately 4 to 6 times before it starts. After the first start of the day it will crank about 2 turns and fires right up.
Is anyone else experiencing this and if so whats the fix for it? My golf has 24000 miles. I replaced the fuel filter and its not any better. I'm thinking the HPFP is possibly de-priming over the night causing the extra cranks, what are your thoughts? thanks
There is an excellent video on U-tube explaining and demonstrating the repair.

So any new updates on this issue?
I'm also getting long starts on the first start of the day and I'm worried that it might become an issue as it gets colder.

Stage 4 custom Malone tune, VNT 17 etc. (will be a swap engine)

I had this issue after putting in a cheaper fuel filter and getting the Stage 2 fix... So I couldn't tell what caused it.

The dealer mentioned the battery was on the way out. I put in a new battery and the car hasn't done it except for the first crank.

Theres a crazy sensor suite on new cars. Need to feed it plenty of angry pixies.
