SOURCE: engine stalls out intermitently
First I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been changed recently, might check the fuel pump relay, might be going out. Lastly, it might just be the fuel pump going out. I just had to replace mine on a '96 SHO. Hope this helps

Head bolts are torque to yeild so you MUST use new bolts.
Tighten cylinder head retaining bolts in numerical sequence in three steps as follows:

Code 33 is EGR opening not detected, this is caused by a plugged EGR exhaust passage in the upper intake manifold, this is a common SHO engine fault, the valve works but the engine does nothing that the computer can sense, since no gas flows, to verify this is the problem open the egr at idle, the engine should almost die, if nothing happens or only a tiny change in idle speed or quality the passages are plugged, if it does stall or get real rough the egr position sensor (usual code for sensor is 32) may be faulty or the valve is sticking. I was a ford dealer tech for 30 years and did quite a few of these, there is a TSB (technical service bulletin) about this problem

Cylinder head bolt tightening sequence - 1993-97
Remove the head from the engine. If prying is necessary, use a protected blade; take great care not to damage the mating surfaces of the head and block.
Clean the head and block of all gasket material. Take great care not to gouge or scratch the mating surfaces.
Place a new gasket on the cylinder block. Make sure it is positioned correctly. Install the cylinder head in position.
Lightly coat the head bolt threads and plate washers with engine oil. Install the bolts in the head.
Uniformly tighten the head bolts in several passes in sequence, to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
Mark the front of each bolt with a dot of paint. Following the correct order, tighten each bolt an additional 90 degrees. When complete, all the paint marks should face to the side of the engine.
Again following the correct order, tighten the bolts another 90 degrees of rotation. When complete, the paint marks should face the rear of the engine, exactly 180 degrees away from the original starting point. Correct bolt torque is expressed as 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm) + 90° + 90°.
