Angry 03 SVT Just Dies!

I've got a question for everyone. I bought an 03 SVT and in the 1800 miles that I've had it, it has died 5 times. It has died 3 of those time just going down the road. It just dies! no warning at all. The other two times have been coming to a stop. When I put the clutch in, it dies. It's been to the dealer 3 times and they can't find anything. They even had a "Ford Engineer" fly in to look at it, nothing. Has anyone had this happen to their car? Any advice?
Thanks.

That's about the only thing that they've done was flash the ecu. Didn't help at all.
