A 912E gearbox is 915 based, and few pieces other than some small hardware are the same as a 901, 902, 911, or 914 gearbox.

Sounds like it's starting on the cold start and not the injectors. One major cause of this would be a large vacuum leak. You might also have a sensor plate issue. If the pump runs all the time,...
