CPS? Car starts but shuts right off

so my car was running completely fine until i wasnt using it for like 2-3 months...i went on a quick little <2 mile drive within my town and it just stalled on me...turns on and then stalls a little later and eventually wouldnt even turn over again...i pushed it to my house just one block away then it started again...

i try again a few days later and it turns over but shuts right off...and keeps doing it until i get lucky and it may stay on...i go for a little drive and it stalls at idle...

ive already tried cleaning the MAF and it made 0 difference so can this be the CPS or probably something with my messed up custom turbo? lol how can this just suddenly happen when the car was running completely fine? i just didnt use it for 2-3 months and this started suddenly occurring

I had a similar problem way back a year and a half...maybe longer, I thought it was the crank position sensor, but it turned out to be the fuel pump.

I had my mechanic check it out and replace the fuel pump and everything was back to normal. Just something to keep in mind in case it turns out not to be the CPS.

Any new modifications to your car? Cosmetic, or otherwise? You've been off this site longer than I have.
