Neil and I talked about it, and it could also possibly be the Fuel Pump
Circuit Resistor Control Switch? If problems start at boost, try bypassing
the switch with a jumper -- it's near the master cylinder and has a thin
black vacuum tube going in one end, and a two-wire harness at the other.
It's about the size of a 35mm film case, wrapped in a black rubber booty.

Perhaps you should check voltage under boost (it should increase to 12-15v
or so); or bypass this switch with a jumper and test drivability.
