Apparently it is getting too much fuel. Putting the pedal to the floor only allows more air into the system. An engine will only run when it gets a good air/fuel ratio.

Good luck,

i did not use a kit. i made my own harness using a 91 mustang harness and my original. it also has the a9l computer and mass air meter. i should say that it did this before the conversion
