EA starts terrible when hot.

My EAs got a stg 3 crow cam etc (see below), and not long ago I got the injectors cleaned. When its cold, it generally starts fine without hardly any winding over, just how it should be, but it runs bloody rough for 5 minutes and blows white smoke (blows smoke only sometimes?????????) then its perfect. It doesn't use any oil. And goes hard. Then, if I just turn it off for 5 mins, then go to start it, it takes a fair bit more winding to start. This has only happened since i had the injectors cleaned. It is asthough there isnt any fuel getting to the motor, but i turn the key off and on several times to try and increase the injector rail pressure. ANY IDEAS????

Falcon S, MPFI, red, Resprayed with colour coded bumpers, motorvator extractors, walker hi-flow cat, 2 & 1/2 exhaust system, cold air intake using hi-flow K&N pod filter (heat sheilded), stage 3 crow cam with a vernier cam timing gear. Severly ported and polished EB 4.0L head, shimmed valve springs - compression ratio (9.5:1 +). Making 145rwkw!!

Re: EA starts terrible when hot.

Fuel pump? The hard starting when warm seems to be indicitive of dribbling injectors.
