I had a similar problem with a Dodge Caravan - On the Dodge, it's called limp mode, designed to protect the engine and tranny. If you can get the OBD-2 engine codes and look them up online you may find that the problem is elsewhere in the drivetrain. Not really an answer, but a solid suggestion of where to go from here....

How long is "a while" ? If it starts with a boost it can only be a couple of things. Dirty or defective battery cables , factory defective battery (yes, it happens) or the vehicle is drawing too much power when the ignition is shut off , often due to improper installation of after market stereo or something plugged into cigarette lighter. Also, does it crank over for a long time before it starts with a boost, or does it start quickly ? This is important as much cranking indicates other problems and means the vehicle probably needs a tune up.

when you replaced the intake gaskets you over tightened the bolts and cracked the plastic on the new gaskets or cracked them replacing the intake on the engine or the bolts needed to be replaced cause they were stretched or the wrong gaskets where sold to you and you have a vacuum leak these are the most common causes of the problem you are explaining the newer intake gaskets are very sensitive to over tightening you really have to be carefull and follow the tightening sequence and torque specs

check for codes, if none then check fuel pressure and volume with a gage. pressure should be in the area of 35lbs unless this is throttle body which is about 15/18lbs pressure, if this is a vortec motor the pressure is 55lbs. the volume should be about 1 liter in 15 seconds. the vortec injection systems have a problem with the spider fuel lines that go to each injector cracking/breaking causing no fuel supply and leaking into the intake manifold and not going into the cylinders.
