The only issues like you describe have normally been experienced by Boss owners after replacing the extractors (the o2 sensor gets moved further back on some systems fooling the computer).
I have never had my XR8 stall in 8000 kms of driving.
Thanks for the reply.
The first time the ute stopped was on the second day I had it, completely standard, doing about 30km/h thru a housing estate. Altough it is autotrans I thought it must have just stalled.
It probably did it 4 times before I got the exhaust, which is a herrod cat back system.
The dealer checked it out completely standard and could find nothing wrong.
I drained the petrol tank in case I got a dose of crap petrol but that made no difference.
At one stage I thought that it only happened when I did not use Optimax, but I have since discounted that theory.
It is just like turning the ignition off momentarily, no coughs or splutters, just instant stop.
It has probably done it 20 times in 10,000km.
It is not really confidence enspiring when you try to cross an intersection quickly, in case it stops half way.
