Have you checked the fuel pressure when it stalls?

Have the EEC system codes checked, hopefully there will be some in the memory. Is the throttle body clean? Have you replaced the fuel filter? IAC maybe acting up.

I found your other post about the IAC, please make sure that the throttle body is clean and adjusted properly. After you get the codes come back here for further help.
