KA SOS!!!!! My Bucket Needs help. KA24DE Dies and Sputters.

Well long story short my 92 240sx KA24DE at idle will bog out and die. While driving it at a steady speed it feels like it's cutting out and it jolts. I replaced my fuel pump relay to see if that would fix it and needless to say no it did not. I have dumped about every chemical under the sun to fix it (nope). Have any of you had the same problem and know of any fix.

Mods (if you can call them that)
Shitty knock off radiator
Shitty Knock off exhaust cat back
Shitty coolant overflow
Some Random pod filter (recently cleaned)

I love the car but after replacing a motor, it blowing up a radiator full of steam and boiling coolant (giving me second degree burns on my face), and now this. This car is making it really hard to love thanks primarily to the ricer before me.

Well if your tired of the headaches and burns, sell it. If not, you should try pulling out you spark plugs and checking them. Spark plugs tell you a lot about the way your engine is running... but I recommend going and getting a new set, throwing them in , running it a bit and pull them back out. Think of it as a fresh reading.
Sounds like your problem is fuel, but you need to check your air, spark and fuel. Fuel can be your pump, clogged injectors , dirty fuel filter.

The spark plugs are new (less than a week) pulled them out still shiny and new.
After work I went and bought a fuel filter and it sorta fixed the problem, but you can still tell it's there faintly. My guess is the fuel pump what do you think?
