1997 7.3 engine dies after hard acceleration

My 97 dies after a hard acceleration with this edge evolution on stage 2 or 3. What would cause this? Only does it with the tuner. Unhooked map sensor and icp sensor and still does it. Oil level is full. Its like someone hit the key and turned it off. I'm stumped as to if its an oil or fuel issue or if its the edge itself. I know edges are junk but I couldn't afford a ts yet and I got the edge for a decent price and was trying to increase my fuel mileage. Thanks for the help guys.

Your running out of fuel, hopefully you haven't trashed an injector or few yet, edge is junk on these trucks, a ts chip is about $80 more at most then what you paid for that edge used, and about $200 cheaper new, send it off for custom tunes or keep it only as a code reader
