Help! Car keeps stalling

Hey everyone I really need help and ideas here from anyone knowledgable I have the IpF kit on my car with the V3 supercharger. My car is an auto and is IPF tuned the problem is that when I'm driving around and stop or take off slowely from a stop then stop again my car stalls out. I've had 3 retunes and it got better but has not stopped any ideas why? The idle is fine once it starts the rpms dip to below 700 when coming to a stop only in 1 gear the rest when downshifting stay above 1000

To me it just sounds like the idle needs to be raised alittle.

Tune, sorry. They have tunes with notes that say :NO STALL, so I'd assume they have seen this before. I have never had this issue with mine. Hope you get it figured out.

Had a similar issue with my M6 with the first tune I had. When I would depress the clutch when coming to a stop the idle would dip and sometime stall. Arno tweaked the idle and this hasn't happened since. Have seen issues also when the MAF splice is not done right. I soldered my splice instead of crimping and used boating heat shrink. Might want to check the splice to see if it's intermittent.

Funny you should bring this up. My car (auto) hasn't actually stalled, BUT the idle feels ever so slightly rough and sometimes it feels like it MIGHT want to stall / misfire but it doesn't. I have however had it misfire twice on me in the last month or so. I've talked to people about this and some think it is the spark plug gap. I WAS running around 0.035-0.036. I literally just finished changing out my spark plugs (with new ones) and opening the gap to 0.038-0.039. It seemed to have helped. But I'm not sure about IPF since they suggest to gap down to 0.032ish

Another thing is, it could be the tune.

This is another possibility. Given that I've had MAF sensor issues in the past.

Steps to resolution based on replies,

1. Check for leaks.
2. Check for tune issues.
3. Clean MAF
4. If clean MAF does not help, purchase new one.
5. If resolution is not found, repeat steps 1 - 4.

Ok here's the deal
The trifecta tune is still loaded in the TCU Arno wants to get it back to stock we think that is the problem also when I put my car in drive it doesn't stall Im hoping that is because I told trifecta not to tune drive
So that's my first step
2.clean MAF
3.replace spark plus gap down .31
4 replace MAF
5.take it in to Henderson performace.

Sorry I was not on this board for a while, mine stalls twice a week, coming up to a stop the engine justs quits. Stall or shuts down, no spark blow out, dirty throttle body, vacuum leaks maf wires are good to go. Can't figure it out, just coast in neutral restart. No check engine light, it has to be the ECU bosch doing it.

Hi 1

the SAME Software is running in ca. 40 other Camaro AT SC Cars without stalling ... even the first german SC conversion did NEVER ever come near to stalling in any driving situations that i tested last week !

So put the TCU back to bone stock original GM file is the next step of Clearing this ugly Situation !

remember ... when driving in AT - D MODE the car drives fine without stalling !!

only when u use the shift paddels ... it stalls sometimes ! !!

that Padel shifters were NOT used in the ECU for any IDLE control !

It doesn't make sense to me. Trifecta doesn't (and to my knowledge CAN'T) tune the engine differently between "S" and "D" Vince has said himself you cannot have two different tunes, one for "S" and one for "D." You can however have different transmission tunes, i.e. why the car shifts firmer in "S" The issues I've had doesn't matter what mode it's in, and I didn't expect it to make a difference. Granted I never had the engine completely stall (yet).

**EDIT**

Just saw Ash was talking about the TCU...

Now that makes sense. I guess my issue is different than others. I do not have any problems when slowing down to a stop. It is AFTER I have stopped and just sitting at a stop light or whatever. My rpms bounce around a little bit and every now and then it seems like it wants to misfire or possibly stall. It basically seems like the engine has a hiccup.

Hrrmm...not right on topic but sorta related... I went back to the stock tune from Trifecta over the weekend. During the tuning process, it is supposed to do the transmission tune right after the engine tune, but the Trifecta program failed on me in between the two.

So I said heck with it and left it for now, but do intend to try and go back to do the TCU and set it back to stock if I can.

Now that some time has passed, did this in fact solve your problem?

Yikes, I have my order still being processed and came across this thread. Now I'm nervous about installing this on my LS. I don't want to have the same issues, hopefully it's just a couple of isolated incidents.

Just saw this thread, mine has been stalling a lot but its not due to any tune issues. I think I have a solution but I need to test it whenever FedEx gets off their lazy asses to deliver my order.
