    I have this issue from time to time. It's a bit embarrassing when it happens in front of people I know. Glad to hear there's a fix out!

    My starter drags on occasion, but I dont think that is related to this.

    This is for those who have to try cranking the car twice before it starts.

    Yep, thats what mine does. Have to sit there and wait, and even sometimes that doesnt work. Also sometimes when the car was just running and i just run into a store to get something Id have it not start on the first try.

    Interesting, I just started getting this problem this week. I installed a ported OEM downpipe this weekend so I'm attributing it to that for now.
