930 engine shutting off

Problem with my 78 930..the engine shuts off between shifts, just like you turned the key off, then after a few moments comes alive again. This problem started a few weeks ago as infrequent, now it is becoming very frequent. Under boost it runs like a goosed goose, no problem there, it seems a bit rich though, particularly at idle where it will burn your eyes. It has been that way for a long time, i don't think that is a contributing factor. This problem seemed to happen all at once. Seems when you lift your foot off the gas, the engine shuts off, hit the key and it starts right back up, seems like it runs out of gas?? Both pumps are new and run fine.
The car had a recent major done , everything rebuilt or replaced, usual upgrades, Powerhaus IC , K27, 1 bar spring. Euro spec car 700 series number. Ran terrific for the last 3000 miles since.
Anyone have any ideas where to start???
1978 930 Eurocar, steel slant. k27HS, Powerhaus IC, SC cams, RarelyL8 muffler.....,
