Truck wont stay running

Ok my truck keeps dying after slow acceluration from a low Rpm. And it's getting worse fast!! there is a point in my low power band that the truck just dies. It idles fine, but if I give it gas even in park it will die. if you give it hard gas it will hesitate at that point but get past it and run, till you let off the gas then it will die. Once I get past that point it runs fine no hesitation or any thing in drive. to put it in perspective a 4 block drive you will have to restart the truck about 10 times, it dies every time you slow down then accelerate it will die. The problem seems to be around 5 mph. if you hard accelurate through that area the engine sounds really quiet no rattling. This is really dangerous problem, It gives you enough gas to get into an intersection then dies. I just had stage 1 injectors put in and it ran fine for the last week. This just started today. Could it be the HPOP? No codes I reprogramed it several times (thought it might be the programer) I did notice that in race it seemed to be worse. Any Ideas???????????????

How is your oil level. If the oil is low there will be problems.

oil level is good. And yes it's an auto. Also if you would look at my other post in the 94 to 98 general threads. I did just find some things and I posted pics. Your input would be a big help

Can you test the fuel pressure at the schrader valve on the fuel filter housing? Causes can be some gunk plug somewhere slowing down fuel delivery. The fuel strainer in the fuel tank can pick up crud and slow things down, the fuel pump may be getting weak, many things to check.
