Under acceleration my car runs strong, but as soon as you get out of the gas it tries its hardest to stall out, you can sometimes keep it running by playing with the gas, but not always. When it stalls you put your foot to the floor and crank it over and it starts right up like nothing happened. If you drive it like a granny it runs perfect, but give it a little too much throttle, your looking for a place to park just in case it won't start. The car idles good. My fuel pressure guages don't seem to be dropping out of sight when I step on it. I just changed the fuel filter so it shouldn't be plugged. Any suggestions.

Thanks for your help in advance

For some reason, it ended up being to hot for the car (97 F). Took it out last night (68 F) and it ran great again, (smoked a 2001 trans am ram air). When it was hot out the temp of the car was 190 deg. I've drove it on days that were hot (85 F) with no problems, but not that hot. I guess I just won't drive it when it's smokin' hot outside.
