Have you checked the things we've been suggesting that you check?

Since the problem is so sporadic; factor in the potential of a major problem down the road; and how many miles are on the current starter i figure its a good idea to just replace the starter. But i will be cleaning all connections while im doing this.  Smiley Just want to point out that I did check the battery connection and thats fine. Based on everything i have read all signs do point to the actual starter.

Decided to take Rotors advice to check/clean all connections.
Took for a long drive and turned the car off for 20 minutes...same issue.
IMO its gotta be the starter. Just got thru looking at how to do this and man...what a PITA!
Car shop quoted a price of $110 for labor.
Ive been enjoying working on this car but I think this is one of those scenarios where I will just let the shop take car of it.

You have mentioned more than a few times how hard the starter is going to be to do.

Your shop cost of $110.00 dollars means it's just a little over an hour at most labor for the R&R

I looked this up and it's remove the manifold brace, remove the wires and 2 bolts and a bolt with a nut.  Doesn't seem like it's a lot tot me.

I know its been a while on this thread but I wanted to do a followup as to the problem:
Ended up being the starter.
What made this such a PITA was I replaced the starter with a starter that ended up being no better then the OEM I had replaced.
