Well, it's time to get a different mechanic. If it's emitting black smoke, it's not starved for fuel. Black smoke is an over-rich condition. Highly doubt it's the fuel pumps. Like many people have already stated, checked for vacuum/boost leak. And don't let anyone throw new parts at the engine hoping that will fix the problem. Seriously, find another mechanic.
