have you had it keep running for any amount of time? i had mine start but stutter while driving(accelerating and when getting on it) then would idle down and die at stops.
1turbofocus is right, datalogging would help you figure out if your problem was the same as the OP. You might be better off starting your own thread because even though symptoms are similar- the causes might be different. The first thing you should do is see if you can hear the fuel pump when you turn the key from OFF to ON. If you can, then you're better off diagnosing with another angle more towards checking the coil pack and it's power wiring.
