944 Turbo Stalling/Loss of Power

Looking for advice on where to start trouble shooting.

89 944 turbo is not daily driver.  Starts (sometimes not on first attempt) and runs fine for about 15 miles or so, then has loss of power and to keep the engine from stalling I need disengage clutch and pump accelerator. Can gradually proceed at a few MPH and limp home by pumping accelerator and engaging clutch for short periods.

Replaced the DME relay but that does not help.  Seems like a fuel issue.  Fuel pump?, fuel filter?, eng. temp sensor? Appreciate any thoughts on where to start, as I am trying to learn to work on the car myself when possible.
