Ok, so it is your fuel system. Spec for the fuel pressure on this is 60-66 psi, and they are notorious for failing, either the pump, or more likely the injector assembly. There is an update to the spider assembly taking it from a problematic CPI to a MPFi fuel injector assembly. It requires taking the upper intake off. The fuel pressure regulator is integral to this, so if the regulator is bad, its worth doing the update.

Otherwise its a weak fuel pump.
