      On my '92, it's because the check valve in the fuel pump is bad. This allows the fuel to drain out of the fuel rail, which means it takes longer for the pump to repressurize the fuel system. A couple of things to try:
      1) Next time you start, try cycling the key from on and off before turning it to start. Each time you turn the key on, you should hear the fuel pump run. See if this makes it easier to start.
      2) Put a fuel pressure gauge on it. Run the pump (ground test lead), then see how long the fuel rail holds pressure after you shut the pump off.
