2.3 modded engine dies out after a few minutes.

car is an 04 2.3 sedan 5spd.

mods:

cosworth cams and valve srpings
cosworth intake mani
FC 67mm throttle body
F2 header
fswerks cold air

no cels , car has an aem air/fuel gauge and it reards just about 15 and sometimes jumps up to 17 while driving.

car *kind of* has a tune , from fswerks. Previous owner said there was an issue downloading the tune.

car goes down the road fine.
any ideas guys ?
