    Can we get a little bit of a background on the car? Like mods, when the problems stated etc?

    How long has it been acting like this? Since you bought it?

    Try changing your filters; fuel and air, that can bog down your acceleration. If it is dying on you it could even be your fuel pump. If you live somewhere cold, moisture can build up inside your gas tank, if it sits around without a full tank. Try throwing some drygas in there, you can buy that at gas stations or any auto store. I hope some of these suggestions help.

    Do you notice any bad oily smell? If you do, that is definitely your fuel filter!

    I mean are you able to record the data that your ecu puts out as you car runs (boost, air to fuel ratio, feedback knock, etc.). This might help you figure out if the car is tuned properly and running healthy. This would help us be able to try and figure out what is wrong.
