Default Intermittent long crank times when cold?

I have a 98 sl1 and after sitting for 8+ hours more often then not it will not start on the first crank like it used to and I can sit there and hold it for 10 seconds and still nothing, if I simply turn the ignition off and back to crank it starts but usually chugs at 500rpm for a few seconds before jumping up to 1000+rpm, not always but usually.

I threw a few parts at it and it didn't solve anything, rebuilt fuel injectors,new ngk bkr4's, both ect & iat sensors & crank sensor.

Fuel filter,TPS,map sensor, plug wires,both ignition coils have been changed 45xxx miles ago, I change plugs and ects every 20xxx.

Fuel filter is ptc pgf846, I've heard generic filters can cause issues but could this be the case if it worked fine all this time? Could it have developed a bleed down situation?

I have not been able to test fuel pressure after sitting as I had to borrow the pressure gauge but key on shows 44psi & idle shows 48psi, I really don't want to drop my tank if I don't need to.

As of now my options seem to be change the pump, fuel pressure reg, ignition module or go with a Gf1846 fuel filter, what would you guys do?
