With fuel pressure gauge attached-key on reading 42 psi- start car reading 45 psi, needle?Fluctuates violently then dropes to 0 car dies, pressure jumps back up to 45. Starts right back up- duplicates problem, over and over. Replaced regulator same problem, tried bypass trick on fuel pressure resistor-no help

Thanks guys. Probed each injector with Waekon EFI quick probe. Injectors were fine. Fuel pump is a little weak at steady 40 PSI. Problem was fuel pressure resistor. Running fine.
