Default 87 Turbo II strange issue!

My 87 turbo II has developed a weird issue recently. I started the car to leave from work like i always do. When it was warmed up to my satisfaction I went to pull out of the driveway and the car wouldn't rev without dying. I got it to rev to around 4k once and then it wouldn't do it. The car will idle just fine, but the second you touch the throttle it will either die or get close to dying and then right back to idle. I'm at a loss for what it could be. Help?

Start by looking for vacuum leaks. Carb cleaner works well
