Weak starting

At first start up, she turns over easily. after I drive then shut it off and go to start it back up, she turns over very lazy and even stops in the middle of turning over. Even my fuel pressure gauge changes color like I unhooked the battery.

I installed a new LT4 starter, newer cables and its a good battery. any ideas?

Re: Weak starting

How do you get it back to an "easy start" condition? Is it cooling off then just starts easy again?
