Common things happen commonly. So check for the usual suspects first.

Is the wire harness connected to the Air Flow Meter? If so, peek inside the connector to be sure the metal connectors have not become displaced. Check the air ducts across the top of the engine. Splits in the accordion section are common - it can be closed while idling but open up when rev'd as the engine rocks on its mounts. Is there enough gas in the tank? If the in-tank pump is weak or not functioning it'll have problems running when the fuel level is below 1/2 full. If possible, add 5 gallons. Did you fill up just before stopping? Could that gas be contaminated? Check inside the vacuum hose that goes to the fuel pressure regulator. There should be no evidence of raw fuel in that hose. If there is the FPR has failed.
