Tom: Nice car!  Consider joining the sublist of 200q20v owners at http://www.audifans.com/mailman/listinfo/200q20v

The stalling problem you describe is typically caused by a bad turbo bypass valve; likely the valve should be replaced, and the vac line running to it replaced as well.  You should also run the diagnostics and see if there are any stored trouble codes.
