engine keeps shutting off

hi guys, having a little trouble with my 283. everything is pretty much new on the motor, my problems start with a high idle, when i go to drop the idle it will shut off, when you try and set the timing it will shut off. Also when you go to put it in gear it will shut off,, the only way to keep it from shutting off is to keep it reved up while shifting or just start it in gear. what could this be from? When i get it going down the road it kinda studder a little as well. Could any of this have to do with the ignition system(summit street and strip ignition system with the rev limiter) The rev limiter works so i dont think it is in the ignition. if there was a wire wrong i suppose the ignition wouldnt even work.. Also i am running with cut of pipes right now,, would no back pressure have to with anything? I am thinking maybe something with the vacuume......

All help is greatly appreciated,, i need to get her right.
