This sounds like the bypass valve to me but you say you have replaced it
already. I would verify that the vacuum line that runs from the Drivers side
back of the Intake Manifold is not crimped where it passes over the clamp.
Also if you have not done so, remove the heat shield and verify the line is
not burned through.

Hey everyone...
Quick question that I have for you all that might of had this problem.
When driving and you give the car lets say from 2nd gear some gas/and
10psi of boost of little bit less and you take the car out of gear and
leave it out of gear like if you are gonna coast it dies.
Sometimes it does not and sometimes it does...this is pretty much in any
gear if you do it in....
I have already replaced the idle stabilizer..the by pass valve and check
all the vacum lines..
I also adjusted the little piston type slow down idle at the throttle body.
Any ideas???

Thanx in advance....
