Default 04 Denali, Cranks a while before starting

Last week my truck started cranking longer before starting but does eventually start and runs fine. If i turn it off and start it right back up then it fires right up. If it sits a while then seems like it loses pressure maybe and cranks longer. Could this be fuel pressure regulator? 04 denali, intake and w4m tune

To answer your question, yes it could be a bad fuel pressure regulator.

Would a CPS cause fuel smell and start back up right away if it doesnt sit too long?

Where is the fuel smell coming from? Tailpipe, Underhood, in the cab?
