I would check your MAFS connector for a good tight fit. If the harness is tight, remove it and check for corrosion. If none is present you may have a bad MAFS. However that is rare.

When was the last time you cleaned the MAFS hot wire? If you have a pop charger that was just cleaned and oiled it could be that you have a contaminated hot wire. I would also check all the intake plumbing for any breaks or leaks as any un-metered air entering the system will cause the car to die when gas is applied.

I have fought with reality and finally beat it
