Maybe your fuel filter is clogged. Maybe your fuel system in the valley is losing pressure. Check in the valley by taking off the engine cover. Grab a good flashlight and look down the valley in between the valve covers. I don't know if your year had the machined hole drilled to drain valley leaks down to the flywheel housing... but look down between that valley... There are 3 blue fuel hoses that connect between the fuel bowl and the mechanical fuel pump. They might be bad. Or the banjo bolt in the fuel pump...that banjo bolt has 2 crush washers that might go bad... I dunno many things could be wrong. Fuel injectors might have a problem or perhaps your air filter is clogged up with crap... although I think you would've already checked that lol
