ShawnRS- Try clearing the ECU codes, and relearning the idle. If you don't have a scanner, you can either go to a parts store (autozone) or the dealer, if they'll do that for you as a courtesy. You just need to clear the ECU memory, and let the car idle for about 5 minutes. Then, turn the a/c on for one minute, then shut the a/c off, let it run for 1 more minute. Shut off and restart, then drive it. See if that helps.

I had a WRX the other day that would stall when releasing the clutch on turns at low speeds... it turned out to be a tight cruise throttle cable. Even after I corrected that, it would stall. Clearing codes didn't help either. Only after I cleared memory AND did the idle relearn, did the stalling problem go away. That idle relearn procedure does a lot for these cars...
