The cranking itself also sounds strong, so I don't think it's a weak battery.

My first thought was maybe the fuel pump or filter?

Anyone else experience something like this?
I've noticed in the morning, there is a slight hitch in starting. Throughout the day it fires up fine. One time, the engine wouldn't completely turn over. I had to release the clutch and restart to get it to catch. Otherwise, the car drives fine.
