Could be caused by one of the following below: 1. Vacuum leaks
2. EGR and PCV valve.
3. Low fuel pressure.
4. Dirty fuel injectors.
5. Mass Air Flow Sensor.
6. Oxygen Sensor.

Check the fuel pressure with a gauge -to rule out both

Def check the fuel pressure, also keep in mind just because you have good fuel pressure doesnt mean anything. Always check if you have a good fuel FLOW too. Alot of time techs miss that flow concept. I am not sure what excatly the specs are as far as flow goes. I'll look for it and let you know.
