Try the fuel pressure regulator: if it's stuck open you'll never get the 45+psi at injectors that's required. if it's stuck open you'll need a new one, and when you need a new one, you're going to be encouraged to buy a new spider (one with proper injectors and not poppets). that's where i'm stuck, i can't really afford the $250....

Engine cut off while driving down the highway why?

Fuel pump may be failing. Check fuel pressure at injector rail. If pressure is good and stays good, suspect fuel pump relay may be getting weak.
