HELP! Stalling as soon as the engine gets warm.

1988 Firebird Trans Am GTA 5L 5 Speed with TTops and Digital Dash.

Hoping I can find some help maybe someone has had the same problem. I replaced a bunch of parts to tune the car up and now I am having issues with it running.

It fires right away no problem what so ever but while running idle jumps back and forth from 500 to 600rpm and once the car gets hot enough will just stop dead. It will then not start until cool again.

I checked the timing it seems fine, fuel pump is working ok full list of new parts and I am not sure what to look at next. Someone suggested EGR Valve... any ideas would be great.

New parts just installed: MSD Distributor Cap and Rotor, MSD blaster coil, MSD spark plug wires, AC Delco Spark Plug Set, alternator, battery, ram air intake and Ignition control module.
