Update-


So when ahead and changed the fuel filter with a local member..

The car was idling a bit better but then started a slight hesitation... This time it didn't shut down tho... So after 20 min of idle- I took it out to parking lot of my building... When I started accelerating almost at wot- the car choked out and died.

Then it wouldn't turn back on to maintain idle...

We had a predator but it didn't want to communicate...

So we had another scan tool- basic obd2

It tells me my fuel trim is at 40 psi- but my fuel gauge regulator up front tells me 30 psi...

I took a video of the hesitation the other member Kyle is going to upload it soon..

Any other ideas?

just to add to this while watching it run, it sounded like the engine is starved for gas/air like its not getting the proper mix of one or the other

my first thought after seeing it act up was there is something up with the FPR, injectors or fuel pump then taking the OBDII and having the 10 PSI difference across 2 gauges

Sounds like an exhaust leak, check any markings in the downpipe. Are you sure every wire to cyl are in the right position?

lou have you tried changing out or cleaning the maf sensor.
also is your car cammed, or ahve adjustable cam gears. your idle is all sorts of lumpy like it has a big vacuum leak.

There currently is no exhaust on the car after the downpipe it's open. I removed everything after it..

I cleaned and eventually replaced the maf-

I have FR adjustable cams

What do you mean wire to the cylinder? Like the plug wire?
