problem with starting the car

i have 2001 gts, with Intake and exhaust,
lately, everytime i try to start my car, it won't start right away, it will roll over and over and barely starts the car. when i turn the car on right after i drive it, it would be faster. but if its been sitting there for while, it would roll over and over about 15 sec and just enough to start the car.
ever since, i installed my Intake 2 years ago, it was doing something similar, but not as bad as this 2 weeks ago.
i don't think its the battery because its a new battery(optima) and it should recharge itself everytime i drive the car.
some of my friend told me that it could be the starter...
i know its not the alternator...what could it be??

clean your maf sensor and temp probe, as well as your throttle plate and spark plugs need changing (maybe)

this fixes 90% of idle, starting and hesitation problems
