I changed my alternator after similar issues and found it to be the battery after the fact. The battery just sucked even though it tested 'good' according to the load tester.

IT's strange that you don't get any CEL light or codes. Maybe the battery has a bad cell. Can you start it and have someone pull the battery cable immediately?

Have you recently done a tune up in which the spark plugs weren't calibrated?

It sounds like the fuel pump to me? Have you had the fuel pressure checked coming into the fuel rail?

You need to test the charging system as a whole. You might not be getting a charge back to the battery. Or maybe a crank shaft position sensor. Just a guess.

I knew that... they have been using maf since '89 ('88 in california). Initially I meant maf not map... my buddy put an engine out of a v8 explorer in his fox body and would not idle because maf was bad... just an idea
