I would suspect a fuel pressure issue.

Use a fuel pressure check guage and check the fuel pressure engine off and engine running and let me know what you find.

Also the cam sensor shoudl be relearend when its replaced that way it is in correspondence with the crank shaft position sensor. If not it will guess lwhen starting till it finds out the right setting before the veehicle will start. Like its doing now.
