97 stroker bogs down when heated up then dies

Hey guys I'm very new to this forum. I know some things about strokers not a ton. I will be driving normal then all ofthe sudden my rpms start sputtering below 1k. Then it just stalls on me basically. I do not have any mods on it right now and I would like to but I'm kind of stuck in this position right now. I changed the fuel filter the correct way when it first happened but then it happened right after. I've been reading about similar problems and people ace said MAP sensor but I just need some more input.

Thanks all,
Ben

Will it start back up when hot? How about once the engine has cooled? Check the main oil level first. No start when hot, you may need new Injector Pressure Regulator o-rings or possibly injector o-rings since hot oil will bypass bad o-rings where cold oil, being thicker will not bypass as easily. Cheers!

That's exactly how it is. It will not start when heated up but once I let it cool down it tarts right up. I put a new fuel filter in cause I thought that might be the cause but nope. I'll try the injector o rings. Would it be a good idea to maybe just get a set of injectors? If I'm going to chip it would that be a good idea?

Thanks
Ben

I would try the IPR o-rings first (cheaper, less work). If that doesn't solve it, move on to running the truck with valvecovers off, looking for oil coming out around the base of the injectors (if there is, the top set of injector o-rings has failed causing a loss of HP oil pressure). Get this stuff fixed before getting upgraded injectors or a chip (unless you know the injectors are the problem). Cheers!

Would it almost be a good idea to replace both o rings?

Thanks

Mine was doing about the same thing, new IPR fixed it.

Where would be a good place to get quality ones? Besides ford dealership. It's just too expensive.

Thanks
