Pull the cap and look at the connector on the inside, they like to go gooey.
Also more than once I have had modules "tested" that said good only to find out' they were bad.
Check all connections are clean, and that battery is charged - and holding charge. If it is more than 3 yrs old- suspect it.
Try it after cleaning and charging battery.
If still no-go, look for any connections from distributor to ECU. They can run without connection, so try without it. If it fires up - problem lies with the ECU inhibiting the distributor.
Check that all leads are open circuit - and not shorting or providing a current leak.
Hoe this helps.

Sounds like the ECU is struggling to maintain a constant speed when the throttle is open on cretain spots. Does this vehicle have a TPS (throttle position sensor)? If it does then it probably needs to be put on a scope and properly adjusted for continuity. Or could be that some other factory settings have been tampered with on some smog components. Either case, its most likely your air/fuel ratio.
