Fuel pressure and flow are the first things that come to mind, followed by a possible failure in the throttle sensor, you will need some special equipment to check these. Do you get a check English me light when this happens? If so it may have stored a code and that will give you a place to start. Auto zone can check the codes for free, it would be a place too start.
