Default 2000 ssei cutting out

I have a 2000 ssei with a thrasher air intake, back to stock pulley and no other mods at moment. When the car is idling it cuts out and seems like it is starving for fuel. While driving it cuts out put still builds boost and performs but has a hesitation and also feels like the fuel is cutting out. I am going to change fuel filter and plugs and air filter. Has anyone had this issue? It jerks pretty bad for a second and then full power then it may jerk a few times like it is running out of fuel. I have 3/4 tank of fuel 92 octane. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I had a similar problem.
It was a loose fuse. Check your #19 fuse in the engine bay panel.
