Do you have access to a scan tool? It sounds like it could be an injector or injector o-ring failure causing engine oil pressure to drop that feed the injectors. You need to scan it for codes along with a cylinder contribution test to check the injectors operation. You can also do a Key On Engine Off Injector buzz test. The engine must produce a certain psi of high pressure engine oil to fire the injectors and run properly. I would start with that.
