Have it scanned.
Crank sensors are common problems.

Fuel pressure regulator leaking down is another, but more so after sitting for a while( 15- 30 minutes)

Yep the most likely culprit would be the crank sensor. I would also suggest that another thing to inspect would be the distributor itself.

No distributor on a Northstar.

regarding hard start. my 1999 sts had the same problem. after replacing fuel regulator the problem was resolved. fuel regulator cost about $40.00, was easy to replace with basic tools, its found under cosmetic cover on top of intake manifold
