Default 2001 vvt ms3x issue

ok, the car is a 2001, vvt, t25 garret, intercooled, ms3x. it started on the base start up tune from diy.had to adjust the reqfuel, inj size, and set base timing, and calibrate everything. then had a coilpack give a lot of issues. replaced the coilpack, ran good again. actually took it for a short drive, everything looked good except timing..which lead to it trying to overheating. parked it. imported a friend of mines ign table, which was for an ms2, and it asked to approve a download to view his tune. long story short, ever since, it will start, and idle. but with the smallest throttle input, it dies. i have restored the tune to before i imported his ign table, still the same issue. here is a log of it at the moment. im knew to all of this https://www.dropbox.com/s/jy7v5fjawte3tdg/log1.csv?dl=0

I had a similar issue with the engine dying with any throttle when I installed my MS3. It turned out to be the vacuum line going to the ECU. I'd check to make sure the line isn't kinked, and if you tapped an existing vacuum hose for the MS3, you could try going directly to another vacuum port. Hopefully it's that simple.

The CSV logs are special purpose logs for troubleshooting RPM input. Can you post a regular data log?
