I would start with basics. Do a compression test, fuel pressure test and spark test. Make sure there is no vacuum leaks and I would check back pressure on the exhaust for clogged cat converter.

It could also be a fault with the ECT. Have that checked as well. Check for Diagnostic trouble codes as well. For earlier models, some codes do not trigger the MIL.
