Default A follow up on my odd start up problem on my 89 Olds Delta 88

Thanks yall by the for the help on how to diagnose the FPR (Fuel Pressure Regulator) that was going out on me. Well the problem is still there. I also replaced the fuel filter at the same time because it was about time for a new one anyways. So I am turning to yall again for more ideas about this. As it stands right now It has a new Air Filter, Injectors, FPR and Fuel Filter. I also had the Battery, Alternator and Starter checked again for the third time and they are still good. Also I put about 30 miles on the new FPR and fuel filter and it hasn't made and difference on my starting problem. Still after 6 or 7 hours it take a few minutes to start but after that it will start every time. Also the gas smell I was getting in the vacuum line from the FPR and the exhaust went away after I replaced it. But I am wondering what else it could be. Could it be my ignition Switch or my Ignition Lock Cylinder/Assembly or maybe it could be my fuel pump. So any and all advice will be helpful in this follow up question. Thanks.

Also I replaced the ignition coil pack and the wires earlier the year to. I added new spark plugs also when I replaced the injectors. So most of the ignition system and fuel system has been replaced.
