so i'm still having air intake issues i think....

car runs smoother now that the vac lines have all been redone and that the TB housing was changed.

but now, whenever i come to a stop say at a traffic light, the car just drops drops drops until it reaches 0 rpm... Ironically though, it's a nice smooth drop, you don't even feel it ... i mean i looked completely dumb when i tried to peel out and the car was OFF LOL

could be the tcc solenoid on your transmission. unplug it and see if it cures your problem.

well it did it after i redid all the vac lines,

and today it rained alot and the car was running super well... well rpm drops coming to a stop, but doesn't stall out.

i'm thinking FPR may have a bad vac line, i tried to jam it in as far as i could but couldn't tighten down the ti-wrap enough.
will be doing this 2morrow.

Just for kicks, when was the last time you added some dry gas to the tank? Periodically when I get some moisure in my tank the engine will die when I let off the gas and put the clutch in. Adding a bottle of Isopropal seems to help. If the problem presented itself after a heavy rain maybe there is a connection...

You know actually the crank sensor could be a good possiblity. Happened to me before. You should take it out and see if there's any small cracks in it for sure. Never hurts to check.... :)
