I have checked egr, it moves up and vacum gone, it resets. Fuel pressure is 40 psi running. will only spit sputter when in drive. i do have mechanical skills, i work in a shop. this one has me stumped, due to the ford tbi does not have an iac. and this is a friends car from work.

I don't know the exact pressure but 55 psi sounds good to me. Most ordinary passenger cars run at about 2 bar with something like a 5 psi increase for acceleration.
A pressure test isn't a lot of use on its own as it is possible it can provide the pressure when no demands are placed on the engine but not deliver the volume of fuel needed when demands are made. A peak pressure test and a flow test would ensure the fuel system is good.
I am wondering if the egr valve is on the same side as the lean bank? Dodgy egr valves are a big cause of bad running.
Low pressure from fuel pump, when the pump is cold the pressure increases, as it warms up the pressure drops (this happens in a pump that is going out) the normal pressure should be at 40 with the key on and engine not running, when started the pressure should stay around 36, any less it won't idle and may run as long as you hold the pedal down. The injectors are opened electronicaly, so as long as there is fuel flow the engine gets fuel to run.So check the fuel pump, soundslike you need a new one
SOUND LIKE PROBLEM IS IN THE FUEL SYSTEM AND TIMING OFF.CHANGE FUEL FILTER HAVE FUEL PRESSURE CHECK.IT SHOULD RANGE FROM 34 - 40 PSI AND 53 - 59 PSI.SHOULD BE NO LOWER.IF FUEL PRESSURE GOOD.HAVE TIMING CHECKED.MAKE SURE PLUGS + WIRES GOOD ALSO CAP AND ROTOR.HAVE INJECTORS CLEANED.ALL THIS COULD CAUSE THE PROBLEM YOU HAVING.
If the car is running that bad the check engine light should be on and code/s stored in the pcm along with a snapshot of what is going on at the time the code is set. A possible solution is to check the Mass Airflow Sensor or the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor depending on which your vehicle is equipped with. The engine may run until the engine computer switches to closed loop fuel control (means its warmed up and the pcm is in control of the fuel trim) and then stall upon accel. Be sure you have checked all the basics first.
