This is the topic I started. I am open to any questions you have. Just got it resolved today. Hopefully this helps/helped someone else out. I tried to provide as much detail as possible. It was fine while driving around town, but when I was on the interstate, it was a pain trying to speed up.

Ok got the final word. Dealership quoted me 400$ to fix it but I decided to do it myself. My wiring harness had a short it in. Where it goes behind the valve cover the plastic coating broke and fell apart and it was shorting itself out on the engine.

Glad you got it fixed. That kind of stuff can be aggravating.

Mine appears to be fixed. Replaced both O2 sensors (if one is bad, probably a good idea to go ahead and knock em both out while your doing it) about 3 weeks ago, and havent had it happen since. also have seen a .75 mpg increase since doing it.
