    HELP car stalls out

    For some reason as of late my car has had a slightly rough idle and today its started this thing where it will cut off once i come to a stop. its only happened 3 times today but thats too many. The car runs fine other the the rought idle (rpms go up and down by 200rmp)
    My mods are stage 2 unichip (which has been on the car for two months with no prob, down pipe, IC hose, blitz TT, and blitz cat back. Can anyone help me find the cause of this?

    Is it hard starting too? Could be a loose battery terminal.

    I would say a vacuum leak coupled with AC use... I had a very small leak for a long time that I didn't know about until I turned on my AC and the car would stall....
