Okay I'm going to back up a little bit here. How exactly do you know that you're losing fuel pressure under load? Are you reading the pressure with the scan tool, do you have a gauge hooked up, or are you hypothesizing based on it lacking power under load?This vehicle actually has a recall for the engine control module software apparently it stop sending the signal to turn the fuel pump on but in the recall it describes it as basically just completely cutting out installing, even still I would maybe call the dealership and see if your vehicle is covered by the recall, get the ECM software updated and then continue diagnosing. I like to start with things that I know are wrong before I continue diagnostic because you never know what yours might have a different manifestation of this issue.Also just a slight bone to pick and I'm only telling you to avoid future confusion but ECU stands for engine control unit, most European manufacturers call them control modules, but you would just refer to the computer for the fuel pump as if fuel pump controller or fuel pump control module when talking to a tech. No big deal and I'm not trying to be nitpicky I'm just trying to like I said avoid confusion.One thing I would like is to know the values from the mass airflow sensor, can you give me the mass airflow sensor reading, meaning the amount of air it is seeing not the voltage preferably, at idle and at 2000 RPM while the vehicle stationary. Thanks, ***** ***** really help.

I have used both diagnostics tool and fuel pressure gauge and I can see the pressure drop round 2000 rpm.
I will get you the air flow sensor reading later hope those information help thanks
