Hard starting

I have a 350 vortec carburated 330 horse GM crate engine the car runs good, one thing that is driving me crazy.If youdrive it and shut it off then hit the key again it does like it should and starts fine and idels fine. When you drive it cold or hot wheather 100 yards or 10 miles you shut it off and wait 10 minites it wannts to turn over for 3 or 4 seconds before it starts then slowly comes to life,untill i hit the gas then idels fine.I first replaced the edelbrock carb with another,that did not work.I put a fuel regulator on thinking fuel was geting trough the needle and seat with the 8psi my stock pump was making.Now at the recomended 5.5 psi it is still doing it .I replaced the cap and rotor still the same.This engine is new with maybe 500 miles on it.This is shamefull when in public.Can anyone help

timing is advanced to far and you're kicking back on the starter
