 Post subject: Hard to start when warm - to be expected?

I recently purchased my MY06 forester from Zeakk off these forums. The car has a 3" cat back with MSR modded sti muffler, resonectomy, a few cosmetic things and a throttlehappy tune. The car runs well, however when its hot it becomes hard/laggy to start. When cold it starts quickly no problem. Is this something to be expected with a tune?

Not normal,
but what fuel are you using?
what fuel is it tuned for?

Have you changed anything?
or was anything changed (removed) before sale that would affect the tune?

Confirmed with old owner when I bought it that he ran caltex 98, I now run bp 98 so shouldn't be any different and it's made no difference.
No previous engine mods, only plans for a turbo upgrade (which is what I plan to do anyway).
Looking to upgrade turbo with supporting mods in the very near future so I have a feeling it will disappear around then (my guess is it's either in the fuel system or tune, of which both will be getting changed.

TH tunes for life. You should get some logs and send to him for some tweaks... that will be free
