7.3 starts and dies

having issues with my 99.5 f350,once a day for the last week at any given time it will stall after start up,as soon as i put it in gear and give it some fuel it dies,then it will start right up again with out any hesitation, then it dies as soon as i give it some fuel,it will do this 3-5 times over span of a minute and then run perfect for the rest of the day,truck has a few mods-mbrp 5in,banks cold air, superchip flashpak programmer,4in lift,35s and has ran great since the day i purchased it

Does it sputter then die or just die like a electrical issues.

Does it do it once it's warmed up

Any check engine lights I would get the codes stored in thr computer. Sounds like something electrical like the idm . The uvch would cause it to run real rough but when there really loose it could cause what I are having.

Did u change the csps

I meant CPS crank shaft position sensor.

When they go bad it will cause the engine to just die. Then it will run fine sometimes. Them just die randomly. I would start there there only 30 bucks
