mine does it too.... I don't think it is related to the stock battery or BOV's either...
What I do now is to prime the fuel system a few times before i go to start, but then, once every few months, the car will turn over but no start.

Even after getting a new battery with over double the CCA of stock, i have still had the car fail to start on the first attempt.

The advantage of having a better battery on the car is that on cold mornings when the car pulls off this stunt, the battery has enough grunt to spin the engine over again to attempt to restart. With the stock battery in winter, if the car failed to start the first time, you may be screwed, since it can barely muster another attempt...
