This only happens on a cold start, I am running E85, have been for a year but this problem just occurred a week ago. When I start the car, it will just shut off, then I start it again, everything works perfectly fine. This problem won't happen when the car is warm.

I also have another problem, the car takes about 5 seconds to start when I leave it for an hour after driving. This occurs on 91 and E85, if I start it 10 minutes after driving, it starts fine. I had this problem ever since I installed the fuel injectors, pump & got tuned for E85.

Other than these problems, it runs fine every day & at full throttle.

My mods, intake, full exhaust, DW 1000cc injectors, blaqops fuel kit, fmic.

Can my injectors be the cause of this?

Your injectors are not the cause.. well directly at least.

It's your tune, and to be more specific, your main crank enrichment map.
Give this a try and go from there -

This is the most likely cause. It probably just needs a tweak on the tune.

It's not getting enough fuel on initial start up. It starts up fine the second time because it has already gotten some fuel from the first time you started it.

This is a common issue with e85. Its also easy to fix.
