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.
