Default Car sluggish to start?

have a turbo 1.8 running on MS-1, 460 injectors, t3....
car starts fine on cold start ups no problems at all, but ive noticed if i try to start it up after a recent shutdown, I get symptoms of a weak/dead battery turns over real slow even stops turning over for a second sometimes and if I just hold it over then it will fire up?

I've been told its possibly too much fuel nearly hydrolocking the motor on startup but if this were the case why wouldnt it happen on cold startup? (the source for theory is not reputable)

Any ideas? I can include my MSQ if that helps to raise any questions?!? I got the cranking PW from brain and they have worked flawlessly. I wouldnt figure the spark map has any flaws I assume a lot of people run the same map that brain does? Any ideas? im not too sure where to start brainstorming on this?

*note* the log is from the first startup on the new injectors with no fuel tuning whatsoever.
