I loved my XT 6
Problems like this with no CEL
sure can get frustrating.
Sounds a"fuelish" to me
Have you looked at the MAF by chance?
Maybe the FPR* is knackered.
(*Fuel Pressure Regulator)
How old is the 02 sensor?
If you have not asked here
I would do so.
Not much help I know but...

Dont just look at it either..you will have to flex it a bit to see it. I didnt discover mine till I actually removed it.

Does it do just fine when idleing? And as soon as you engage it in gear it starts chocking and sputtering?
This may sound strange but it helped me a lil bit. See 3 tips of my fuel injectors were shattered. and 2 were blown out. What i did and this actually worked for bout 8 months was take a pair of vice grips. by the fuel rail where all the fuel lines run in/out. find the return fuel line. if standind on the driver side of the engine it should be the farthest line of the 3 on the left. crimp the return fuel line almost completley off. if you do this while the engine is idleing you should hear a change. rpms should increase slightly. then try to drive it again. you might have to adjust it tighter or looser.
people may think im crazy and yes that may be. or if you wanna take a different route at it pull apart your injectors and inspect them. never hurts

I had to take my tank out and dump all the nasty piss yellow gas out into a bucket then I Took it to my local do it yourself spray carwash and pressure washed the living daylights out of it from every angle possible... Fixed my problem and I was able to drive the car 1,400 mi. without a hitch.
I'm not going that far.... I'm just gonna run some of this fuel down suck out the rest and scoop what I can out..... At this point I'm pretty sure its just bad gas because I put an octane booster in and the problem got better.
