You need to check the vehicle fuel pressure to see if the pressure is within factory specs, should be around 52- 65 psi I think , check specs with current dealer specs, this can cause po 171 and po-174 lean condition always, also check for leaking intake seals

It will cause skipping/ misfiring/ lean miss especially when engine is cold
