Hard starting issues

Whats up guys. I have a 87 SI. when its cold it starts ok....and when its warmed up it starts like crap, but only sometimes. Here are the things that i have done already, plugs (e3's) , wires (bosh), coil (accel super coil), air filter (k&n drop in), fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, fuel pump, removed ac compresor and power steering pump.......I just replaced the starter today. I had a problem a while back with the EGR getting stuck when it was hot and it would turn over but not start. I cleaned it out with some sea foam and a tooth brush and that fixed the problem. That was about a year or so ago. Could this be the cause? Now it has a hard time turning over at all then it starts. I am out of ideas.

Re: Hard starting issues

I recently adjusted my valve lash and that sesemed to help my starting issue some what. My definitely idles and drives smoother now. It seems to have helped my acceleration as well as my ability to maintain freeway speeds as well.
