Have you changed the fuel filter? It also might be your hpop. How many miles on the injectors?

Welcome to the forum! Sound like it could be injector o rings. A test you can do is to rev the motor at a stand still in park, if there is hesitation between 2000 and 3000 rpm then it's time for injector o rings. Which are fairly easy to do.
