Understand what happens to cause vapor-lock. The temp around the motor gets hot enough to boil the fuel in the lines. The pump is likely a problem. it must exceed the 30 psi setting on the fuel rail regulator. this pushes excess gas back to the tank, and keeps the fuel lines cool enough to prevent boiling. When starting, the fuel pump should pump a little gas through the regulator back to the tank, so cool fuel is again at the rail.
Maybe this is a the problem, maybe not. Good Luck!

Remove the gas cap when it does this. If you hear a woosh sound the tank vent isn't working properly. Essentially your tank has turned into a vacuum.
