Dies while in 1st gear at stop light, need a helping hand.

This is a fresh build with lots of changes at once after a rebuild.  MAF is tuned, Idle is tuned so far, working on VVE tables when it started dieing in 1st while at a stop light.

This tune and log just started, so the VVE tables aren't pretty.  MAF is disabled, as is DFCO, no LTFTs, O2 readiness disabled.  E85 Tuning isn't in yet, running 91 oct.

Including 2 logs, 1 tune.

Look for the 3 times it goes to 0 RPM in the long log (00:09:39.202) & (00:16:19.957), I was at a stop light, first long light in the drive, it died 3x here, had to give it throttle and chirp away from a stop.  The 2nd log is very short, it happened after a newly mod'd VVE table was put in, reversing out of a parking space and going into D, it died really fast here.

My observations from datalogs are:
Absolute Load (SAE) spiked to 238%

Trans Engine Torque spiked to 885 lb-ft
Dynamic Airflow spiked to 1,028 lb/h

Volumetric Efficiencey Airflow spiked to 17.13 lb/min then 3 frames later Volumetric Efficiency (mg*K/kPa) spiked to 10,897.

Instantaneos Fuel Flow Estimate Spiked to 46 lb/h

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, can't wait to get this solved and start tuning the trans more!
