How much lower? If you've got more than 15 psi, you've got a great engine in that thing.

If an engine runs well otherwise but stalls on heavy acceleration, the problem is typically fuel related. Check the fuel pressure, both at an idle and when you accelerate. You'll need a fuel pressure gauge that offers the ability to monitor the pressure from inside the cabin. If it IS fuel related, the problem could be either the fuel pump, fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator.
