Car starts fine, runs for a minute, runs rough for a second and then stalls. Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. What do you think?

you need to pull the codes, got new cps? clean the maf? checked your oil and coolant levels? did an idle relearn?

I have an '04 Spec V with a similar stalling issue.

On start-up the car idles and within a few seconds the tach drops to 0 and either the idle bumps back up or stalls.

I cleaned the MAF with MAF electrical cleaner, let it dry(important), and so far the issue has not re-occurred!

I'm running a K&N air filter and suspect the oil ended up covering the MAF.

Good luck.

you need a new crank sensor, or you have wiring issues from the crank sensor to the ecu.

Follow-up
Cleaning the MAF only helped on a temporary basis.
-Changed the Crank sensor - it did not help.
-Changed the cam sensor - it did not help.

Finally swapped the drive by wire Throtle body...so far no issues.

Start pulling sensors out one by one. If the car runs the same with the sensor plugged in as it does when you pull it out, then it's that sensor.

This throws off the expected air fuel ratio and causes the vehicle to run lean. If you have a bad vacuum leak, the air fuel ratio will end up and When your engine starts but stops, concentrate your diagnostic ... as soon as you let the key return to the Run position, the engine dies.
