when you changed the in tank pump, did you inspect the little stepped hose?
If that has a break, it causes problems when fuel level drops below 1/2
Whilst fault finding, I'd suggest you keep the tank full, as I doubt a bad intank hose would (as you write) feel as though "you just turned off the key and back on again"!.... it'd be more like the engine was struggling to pull well, as the main pump is overstressed.
If it were mine, I'd get that relay hack job back to original (fuel and electric is pretty much connected on these cars, a dodgy relay will stop fuel etc) and do a permanent fix on that loose flywheel sensor connector (a loose contact THERE would indeed feel like "you just turned off the key and back on again")...you can buy new bosch connectors online
