    Are you getting any CELs? I'd start with those if you are.
    If not, look for a vacuum line you forgot to hook up?
    It sorta sounds like your temperature sensor might be broken/reading wrong, that happened on my 89 prelude, and when it would warm up, the computer would think it was over heating and shut off.
    Also, since it seems to be timed, make sure your radiator fans are turning on?

    i got my CEL to start blinking and the codes are 5 and 19 which is MAP sensor and Automatic transmission lockup control valve. Yes its a Auto ecu..i got it from my frend who had it in his Del Sol wit a manual b16..it runs fine in his car so im thinking the code 19 isnt the problem that it keeps dieing...i changed the MAP sensor 2x but it keeps throwin the same code..do i have to reset the ecu by pulling off the Neg on the battery??

    Yes clear the codes with the way you said ^ there, and check the codes again.
    Also make sure the map sensor wiring is all good and the connection to the ecu is good too, look for loose grounds etc.

    you have to take the fuse out of the fuse in the engine compartment to clear the codes. you have to have it pulled out for atleast 10 seconds for the ecu to clear its self. do that and get a manual ecu and do it right. let me know if it clears.
