1985 Vette help

I have a 1985 Corvette that stalls a minute or two after starting. When I try to restart it, it just spits and sputters but will not start. If a go back in an hour or two, same thing. It will start then stall. It has ~39# fuel pressure at the rail. It does not kick out a code. I've replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel filter relay, coil, control module, spark plugs, cap and rotor, throttle position sensor and MAF. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Ken

I'm not sure, but does it have a key with the chip on it? If so, try cleaning the key.

I think it's time to ohm out the injectors they should be around 16 18 ohms any in single digits could take out the quad drivers in the ecm causing no start or run badly.

Note the March date on the posts. Hopefully the problem has been solved by now.
