86 Engine stutters/cuts out

I too am experiencing a burping or hesitating engine problem. First time it happened it shut down completely and although it would turn over it wouldn't start for 5 minutes. Suddenly it fired right up. I've changed the GME relay and problem continued. We then changed the fuel pressure regulator. Someone else described similar problem and claims the head temp. Sensor was the culprit. The problem is more prevalent now with full power starts. You've mentioned the fuel injector harness or fuel pump. It does it whether the car is warm or cold. What would you do next?
