I moved this into a new thread for better visibility & replies.

Sounds like while spraying in the cleaner it back fired, blowing the air box lid.
Get the ODD2 Codes read, use a fuel pressure gauge at the rail and see if you have good pressure.
Also check the fuel pressure regulator for gas leaking out.
Remove the hose going into the FPR does it smell like fuel in hose?
You can skip ahead to 2 min 34 seconds in video to see the FPR info.

Is it always running rough before it stalls?

Yes, but have you scanned for any codes? Is the check engine light on?
