Something simple I didn't think about...what kind of battery? Each battery is different and turn out a different amount of cranking amps at different temps...possibly a weak starter and cold cranking amps could be the problem.

Hmm but turns over....

Your fuel pressure might be a touch low...try turning key on/off a couple times before starting...check your distributor cap could be loose or cracked allowing moisture to build..check plugs are capped properly...
