Default Stalling and dying out with no acceleration

Hi I have a 04 pt cruiser with turbo. i bought it used. It has now 108xxx miles in it. For 3 months ive had this problem where i can ride around for hours then when the check light comes on it will stall out or at a red light die and sometimes cut back on or after a while start while pressing the gas and cranking over and over. Sometime the car will still be on but no acceleration.
Now i have replaced many things Iac senor o2 senors bc thats the code that "was" coming up. The tps, crank shaft the cam shaft the pcm the fuses and new alternator coil pk. We even took it to a mechanic who charges us $600 to change the coil pk and "figure" out what was wrong. They told us that it was the pcm so we changed that also. Nothing changed.
Today i changed the cam shaft and started a running a little better but then check light came back on and died on us at a light cranking it and pressing the gas i got it to pull of the road then noticed a smell. I did get it home after dying and restarting with engine light blinking this time. I got new code p0452. P0508 can some one please help i fell lost

I would suggest checking the catalytic Converter. It might be restricting your exhaust.

Did the mechanic check the fuel pressure?

What brand Cam sensor? PTs seem to not like non-Mopar sensors. Sometimes other brands only last a short while or don't work at all. Worth a few bucks more to get Mopar sensors.

I would also suggest checking to make sure all sensors are mounted tight and secure. Make sure you don't have any loose wires going to any of the sensors.
