The symptoms would suggest that. Short of pulling all your injectors and flow testing them, you might want to start with pulling the plugs to look for any indication of rich mix. I would do that directly after you've experienced the symptoms, i.e., don't run her long enough for the engine to "clean up". Catch it at it's worse moment and see if you can find a wet plug...then go from there.
