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.

cville300zx If it was your alternator did it totally kill your battery?

cville300zx I'm bored at work. Actually debating if I'm going to quit or not. Help me pass some time man. Any update on this?

cville300zx 45 minutes in rain? Do you have pop charger after market air intake whatever you want to call it?

If so and you hit a big puddle or two very possible the filter is just really wet and needs to dry out and this part of your problem goes away.

If you believe there's an issue with either the fuel pump or fuel pump controller would be best to connect a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel line plumbing (by fuel filter) and monitor that.

Until you narrow it down a bit all of us will just be guessing about the issue.
im pretty sure i already had a small boost leak because when i throw it in nuetral it always wanted to shut off but stays running. i was driving for about an hour and 45 minutes on the parkway in the rain. its a built motor with around 450Hp

austinpinelliz32 i thought my gas guage could have been broken but we pushed it to the gas station from where i broke down and threw $10 of 93 in it. car fired right up but then again shut off when i went to give it gas. my batteries are shot but im not sure about the alternator. my check engine light and battery light are on.

cville300zx I'm guessing it isn't totally battery/charging related. The fact it starts back up kind of puts that at the back of the list for me.

It does have gas in it right? I know silly question but **** sometimes it's the simple stuff. Never know of your gas gauge **** the bed since the last time you filled up.

cville300zx Sounds like it could be a TPS issue.

And thank you for starting by running the codes.
