    95 GS-T mods are in my profile but the problem I'm having is when I start the car it Idles fine and runs good but as soon as I press the gas or put any kind of load on the car it shuts off! Any help would be great thanks

    Sometimes this is due to the ECU not seeing an airflow signal from the MAF. But I would expect the ECU to throw a check engine light in that case. It could also be due to a large intake leak.

    If so, it's probably an airflow circuit malfunction if I had to guess. I'd inspect the SAFC wiring.

    this is what I'm thinking the problem is as well since I did not hook up the SAFC
    but I will check it out I'm hoping it's something stupid like that. I was also thinking it could be the fact that it has 1000cc injectors and it's flooding it out? Thanks again I really appreciate all the help
