Kinda sounds like a fuel delivery problem, have you tested the fuel pressure and flow? As cam and crank sensors are both high fail I would just replace them, especially if you have over 100K on the engine. They are not that expensive after market parts and once you get the starter out of the way the crank sensor is an easy replacement as well as the cam sensor.

A plugged up catalytic converter is also a possibility. Replace the fuel and air filters while you are at it.
