Thanks everyone for the comments. I will be purchasing a fuel pressure gauge to monitor the values. It's a relatively inexpensive and useful item. Will keep everyone updated on the results.
 
On another note:
 
Doug kindly provided me with his MAP sensor to test in my car. Stumbled 2 out of 3 first starts now. The new circuit opening relay arrived this afternoon so I will drop that in the next few days to test.

Update to the thread. The MAP sensor was ruled out, the car still stumbled with the borrowed sensor - no improvement. Stumbled 4 out of 5 starts.
 
Circuit Opening Relay: I have had 10 good first starts in a row since installing the new Circuit Opening Relay (10th start being this morning). It's the best result I have seen with any testing. While not 100% indicative that the issue is fixed, it's a good indication that it could be the solution.

Thanks for the updates Lumix.  Easy fix if it's just the COR...

Sounds like you may have found the culprit :) Hope it keeps starting normal for you!

As we discussed give it a week and then swap the old COR. back in and see if the stumbles return again.
How did you go with fitting the fuel pressure gauge ?

I haven't installed the fuel pressure gauge yet. I serviced the car Saturday afternoon before it got dark. Plan to get the new fuel filter and gauge installed this coming weekend.
