have you hooked up a pressure gauge to see if its losing fuel pressure when you press on the gas

The fuel pump is lubricated and cooled by the gas that it's in. It's possible that the pump has suffered damage from being run dry repeatedly. Also, there is usually a small filter/strainer on the pump itself. Did you check that? Frankly, if some sediment managed to get past the pump filter, there could be a partial blockage many places in the system.

Alan is right, checking the fuel pressure is the best place to start.

Maybe hood a code reader up and see if any faults are stored. But yes I would check fuel pressure to, spending money and replacing good parts is no good.
