Although I also think it is fuel pump related, I can't
imagine the FP quitting intermittently. My friend says
his pump is quiet (like that's a total diagnostic), but
I'm not sure. When my 4KQ's FPR went, it was intermittent,
but there was no roughness, it was totally digital, it either
worked, or it didn't. 

I JUST thought of a possible test. If the car quits or fails
to start, I wonder if tapping on the relay would work to 
restart the car. If it works, that may point in that direction,
also perhaps check the temp of the relay. 

Just tossing out ideas.

I'll keep you all posted on what my friend finds.
