Is your fuel filter put on correctly? When the breather goes on, it creates a bigger vacuum for the fuel need and if the filter is backwards, it will close and starve the engine. It also could be a sensor for the gas/fuel mixture, a clogged cat, or other electronic regulator.

you mass air flow sensor should be in the air cleaner, try changing that, also your mass air pressure sensor is on the firewall, maybe change that too. when a temp sensor goes bad it will tell the computer the car is still cold, that will also cause car to run improperly.
