    2001 bullitt stalls at idle after reaching operating temp. I've replaced IAC, cleaned MAF, no vacuum leaks, no codes. I'm stumped. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Clogged catalytic converters?
    Clogged fuel filter?
    Worn throttle position sensor? (if stalling on take-off)

    No cats. New fuel pump. New fuel filter. New hoses. New plugs, coils, injectors. Cleaned out fuel system. Drives great no issues. Only stalls at idle. Only thing I can think of is faulty TPS

    If your EGR valve is stuck open, it can sometimes cause stalling as well.

    I can check that. It's never been replaced. Car has 145k miles.

    If you can't figure it out, you can try going to IMBOC. I own DHG Bullitt #3872 and some of those guys are very knowledgeable about Bullitt-specific issues.
