Possible fuel issue yet. I would do a fuel pressure bleed down test to see if the regulator, spider lines, or injectors are leaking. You cycle the key to build up pressure on a gage hooked to the schrader valve, should plump up to about 60 or more, let it sit for about 3 minutes, the pressure should not drop more than 5 lbs.
