Either your fuel pump is getting weak or your lock up converter isn't disengaging. Simply unplug the square 4 prong plug on the side of the transmission and this will disable the locking mechanism of the converter. Don't worry the car will not even know it's disconnected. It will NOT drive any different.

idl air control (IAC),may be bad,also,check the EGR valve,and all vacuum lines going and coming from the throttle body. yu can test the EGR,just try pushing the diaphram by hand from beneath. if you can move it easily its good,if its hard,or doesnt move,ot needs repaced. also a pcv valve and air filter are good ideas,considering you have replaced 80% of the emission system already.
If t dies hard - feeling like the trani is not disigaging when you stop - it could be a electronic part inside the trani.. This part tells the stall converter to kick in at a stop.. Not super expensive to fix.. But best done by a trani shop....
