I don’t know if will help you, but last summer I’ve encountered a similar problem with an NG engine. Sometimes when the engine was hot, massive power loss occurred and pressing the acceleration was useless (the RPM didn’t change). I had changed the ECU, ICU, DPR and checked the engine temp sender. Check engine light was sometimes on and the code was 2132 (communication error between ECU and ICU). The problem was at the knock sensor (the plastic body was cracked and also the cable). I think the timing was being retarded too much and the fuel/air mixture didn't ignite. I replaced the knock sensor and the car was cured   
Hope it will help to solve the problem.
