I am not sure what manual you have but my haynes says 97 should be koeo 35-45 koer 25-35 koer with vacuum line disconnected 35-45

how many times does it have to cycle to get to koeo pressure. what happens to the gauge when you increase rpm's.

have you puled the vacuum line of the FPR to see if there was gas in it.

Sounds like maf or iac sensor problem you say it dies at the same area every time? I have heard of some thing similar due to the difference in the elevation
