my car has been dying sometimes when i put it in gear. i had a guy look at it and he tightened the intake and whatnot. he said that should solve it and it helped alot because i was getting air in the intake that wasn't going through the mas. when it died i opened the hood and was running a little under 40 psi. can anyone give suggestions?

If you were running under 40 PSI (assuming you meant fuel pressure) - then that's too low. It could be your fuel pressure regulator.

I would say fuel pressure regulator too. It could also be the IAC that is malfunctioning.
