My 1990 GT starts and them immediately shuts off, any ideas on this? It will rev if I give it gas but as soon as I take my foot off the pedal it sputters and shuts off.

I agree with the intake leak, a way to check is to unplug the connector to the VAF meter (mass air sensor). If it will run with that unplugged, it's an air leak somewhere. A likely place will be on the throttle body boot somewhere, the big elbow piece going onto the throttle body. They get brittle and crack, often on the back where you can't see it.

the air going into your engine is monitored, you could have a cracked intercooler hose or turbo hose, check them all!
