Bad gas? Intermittent fuel pump/pressure issue? Spark plugs randomly arcing?

How many miles on the original engine pre-rebuild? If the engine was running poorly for some time it is possible these symptoms could indicate a bad catalytic. Can you test the CPS? Having just done a rebuild and replacing plugs, etc...I would be looking at "a" sensor that could impact overall. Are you showing any codes??:(
