I agree with the above; plugs, injectors, stick coils, and fuel pump are all potential culprits.
I will add that I have an '04 that was cutting out only on 3rd gear roll-ons awhile ago... it felt like I'd lose a cylinder mid acceleration. Then a short while after she began having problems starting/idling, and would sputter loudly if I tried to apply any throttle. Turns out it was my fuel pump which is a very common Gen 1 failure... I've come to learn. I believe my feeling the loss of power on those high load roll-ons was the pump beginning to fail. Apparently, the OEM gas caps are poorly designed, and water quite commonly finds it's way through... particularly easily through the key hole. Said water corrodes & kills the pump, and quite often corrodes the tank, as well. I had to sandblast the pump's entire mounting cup, replace the tank, and replace the pump.
