My suggestion is to verify the IAT is supplying valid values to the PCM. Also check that the reported ECT values are reasonable.

Double check the fuel pressure. Is it reasonable?

Double check that the fuel pressure sensor intake vacuum reference line is connected and leak free. Inspect the line for raw gas.

Cycle the key on/pause/off several times without cranking. Does this improve starting? If so, suspect fuel pressure leak down as a possible cause,

Then I would suspect the tune needs adjusting.

^ This. I would do a compression check of the cylinders and check your cooling system too.
