Question white smoke from exaust?

I installed 42# injectors, 80mm mass air, 97 fuel rails, and an aeromotive f/p regulator. It idles fine at startup, and f/p is at 45psi. I drove it around for a few seconds, and it kept stalling every time i would stop, a big puff of white smoke from the exaust followed. It looks like the f/p goes down when driving it? The 10:1 FMU is still on there because I need to get a new line to bypass it. Could that have anything to do with it? I know i need to have it tuned, but shouldnt I be able to drive it without it stalling at every light? Should i go to Diablo for the tune?

I'm not a guru on the '98's, but with the 42#r's and a MAF (assuming it is calibrated right) clocked in the right position, along with the extra fuel pumps, you shouldn't need the FMU at all.

There have been issues with the Pro-M's not being matched right to the injectors.
