Post i need bigtime help !!!!

after spending all week preppin my car to take it to carlisle , the moment that me and my friends were bout to leave my car stalls out. i had intstalled my ground control coilovers onto my stock struts so i could slam it for the show. i noticed that the brake line was connected to the strut and not wanting to take that apart and bleed my lines i cut the bracket connecting the line to the strut and it slipped right out. so all is going well , i get the install done and im driving home and fine. the second i go to pull into my driveway and i backed up for a moment the car stalled when i released the clutch. now this was only happening in reverse when i released the clutch. so whatever , i was pissed and i decided to reset my ecu. when i was bout to leave i started my car up and it would stall out in idle mode. then the check engine light would come on. and it would just keep stalling. does anyone have any clue what this could be. cuz it pissed me off that i couldn't show it at carlisle after all the work and time i put into it, i almost threw a brick at it thats how mad i was. please help

Nothing related to your coilovers or even brake lines. If it stalls, I would check for the following items:
1) Dead MAF
2) Really Bad O2
3) Dirty plugs
4) Defective emission stuff : Catalytic conveter, EGR, PCV, etc etc.
5) Vaccum lines
