At what speed or RPMs and gear(s) is this happening? You said you replaced the FPR, but it may still be faulty. PCIIIs are known to crap out too. It may be an intermittent electrical connection.

Verify (Step 2) of the Ground Fix if you did not get the ground connection next to the battery tight it will cause this symptom.

My 2003 1800C does the same thing at times. When I am really getting on it, it will start cutting out. If I back off the throttle a bit, it will clear up, then run fine. Is your problem similar to that?
