Something like this can be a bear to find. I would start with the fuel filt if it hasnt been changed in a while. Pull it off and try to blow thru it there should be very little resistance.

Then I would check the fuel pressure.

Check the fuel canister. This is in the back by the fuel tank. It grabs the overflow.
I just had to replace one on a 08. It will cause problems with fuel flow and it musts be changed.

How about electrical? Or Maybe there is a problem with the mapping (Maybe Timing is off a bit)? Have you checked any codes?

checked the codes and all it is, is a bad cat converter but i doubt that would cause a stall.
