There's no easy answer to this question, it requires a hands on diagnosis to determine why the engine is stalling.

I would unplug the mass air flow sensor located on the air snorkle next to the air box and see if it stays running. the mass air flow sensor may not be metering the air to the engine computer so your engine computer may be giving your engine too much fuel or too little. By unpluging the mass air flow sensor this will trick the engine computer to run on a predetermened fuel trim set by the manufacture. If your engine stays idleing and has more power I would test this part.
