did you recently install any mods, like a pop charger? If the ECU has not had enough time to adjust to the new mods, the Z will sometimes stall if you push the clutch in and let it drop from high rpms

:OMG:


So you get through the entire run and then while slowing way down it just shuts off? Geez, that would scare the crap outta me.

I've had my pop charger in for more than half of my total miles with zero issues (knock on wood). Check your installation.

Also, have you re-oiled the filter recently? Could be clogging the MAF sensor.

Definately a popcharger. This has happened to me and several others. instead of putting it in neutral and just hitting the brake after your run, downshift also.

man i was swerving in and out of traffic today at a higher speed and the same thing happened. im like omg! gotta learn not to drop it into neutral. but its only from going into neutral and releasing the clutch at higher speed right?

Sounds like it's kicking into "Safe Mode". Also, check the oxygen sensor....these Zs don't like it when we touch the air flow system.....Very finicky cars.....GL2U...Dave

I have the same problem, after I let my revs drop back, it shuts off. So whenever I put it in neutral, I give it some gas so it wont shut off.
