Almost sounds like a fuel pressure issue. I would have the fuel pressure checked, and do a fuel bleed down test at the same time. Another thing to check while it is running is get a can of carburetor cleaner and spay along the intake manifold gaskets, the throttle body base gasket, and anywhere there is vacuum. The RPM's will pick up if there is a leak.
