You said your buddy accidentally reset the computer. Was that before or after he tried pulling codes?
Starving for fuel under hard accel can feel like the engine died. Basically it's dumping fuel, and then suddenly doesn't have any. Gauges would be of great help here. Does it have issues while driving easy, or just under hard throttle?
I forget the "bucket test" for the pump, but it's something like disconnecting fuel lines and seeing how long it takes the pump to fill a 5 gallon bucket with fuel. I would suggest a jerry can so you can easily replace what you take out.
For the sake of doing easy stuff first, try a new fuel filter. It's possible that you got a bad tank of fuel and clogged that one up. I'm assuming this issue is relatively recent of course.
