Check fuel pressure and flow, if that is at specs then check the fuel pressure regulator for proper operation, make sure the vacuum supply is good to it. It the check engine might on?

the check engine light is on it will idle but when I give it gas it dies


You need to pull the codes, an engine control part has failed.
