But then...it starts happening again. CEL on, engine misfiring and losing power, Torque Pro firing error codes on three cylinders.

At this point, not sure what to do. Would flashing some custom tune maybe fix it, since it seems like a purely software problem?

A tune is merely tweaks to parameters within the existing software and that will not fix your problem. When getting a PCM flash at the dealership they are actually re-writing the base software of the control unit and is far more involved.

Basically you need to go back and have them continue with the diagnosis to find the cause of your issue. Make sure Deysha is in the loop.
