hard to start hot can mean injectors or posibly low compression which will make it flood

I would be suspicious of low compression.



Do you know if the injectors are new aftermarket or cleaned stock units?

if the injectors are new off brand injectors they may still be the problem i know of people who bought new injectors but crappy brand that didnt work/flow correctly.-
