I assume that the test for leaking intake manifold has already been done. So you have two other clues that would lead me to think that you might have a low fuel pressure problem or partiality plugged injectors, so that is what I would check.

Yes sounds like all the obvious things have ben tried, should have a engine compression test done, cylinder #3 may have low compression.
