I understand that the fuel pump inside the gas tank should provide about 73 psi. It pumps through a line that goes into the HPFP. From there, fuel is pumped into the fuel rail, where it is available for the injectors. The car has great power and high RPM performance; idles smoothly; accelerates well. BUT after sitting more than an hour it acts like there is no fuel pressure; hard to start; dies; stumbles; etc. for maybe 30 seconds - but then comes to life and is good to go.
I am trying to diagnose whether the issue is the fuel pump in the gas tank, or the HPFP. A have not been able to get a fuel rail pressure reading yet. Any advice? Thanks.

Do not measure at rail. You need a scan tool like Autologic AssistPlus to test the fuel delivery system on these MINI Cooper engines.
