Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

I would check the battery and alternator. If a bad connection exists at the battery (corrosion), the power loss could cause computer problems. Disconnect the battery and get it checked. Being totally without power will fully reset the computer. If battery checks out, but is needing a charge, have the alternator checked. Since it will run under heavy throttle, would also look at TPS, MAP sensors. Also have to consider a large vacuum leak (especially the intake plenum gasket).
