I got this bronco i hooked it up to the code reader and it said new tps but then i read up on it and thats not the reason that it is dying when i put it into gear... i have to pretty much floor it to keep it running but even then it will just die..

Will it idle fine in Park? Can you rev it like normal until you put it into gear? Can you put it in Neutral and push it around?
If yes, yes & yes then try putting it all the way down into 1st and trying to drive off. I've seen a transmission get locked into 3rd gear and it would bog like heck trying to take off.
If yes, yes and no than check to see if one of your front brakes has locked up - especially if it has been sitting for a while.
If no to either of the first two then you probably have a FI problem. Clear out the codes and try pulling them again. Might be an O2 sensor, might just have a plugged cat. Might be a lot of things.
Good luck.
