cold start, high compression motor, our starters aren't very strong. I'd consider it normal behavior. Mine's taken a bit of cranking to start cold since it was new. I wouldn't throw more money and parts at it.

It is part of the deal. No car is perfect, but if you know the imperfections well, you can deal with them easier.

Good topic.

Before you get a new fuel pump, do yourself a favor and check the a/c compressor relay. If it's the Omron relay it can get stuck closed. If it gets stuck closed when the vehicle is turned off and the a/c is still engaged, it can create enough parasitic loss in the battery for a slow or no start condition.
Hmm, I wonder if mine is doing that.
