Default car keeps stalling.

I bottomed the car out about a month ago and f'd my starter wire and ground wire for the motor to body. I replaced both of the wires and now, when I just start the car it dies every time I hit the breaks. When the cars warmed up it will only stall when the brakes are hit hard. When its warmed up I can coast then slowly apply pressure to the breaks with out stopping. I also noticed that after a wot pull the car will die when I let off then it will start back up. The cars a stick and yes I am pressing in the clutch every time I stop. I've tried raising the idle but that didn't help.// Anyone have any ideas at what could be causing my problems?

Do you have a boost/ vacuum gauge? Maybe a vacuum leak?

Hmmmm.

My car did the same thing you are describing but i am a out. When ever i would hit the brakes hard it would stall (only time it would stall tho wouldnt stall when it was cold) And it ended up being a tuning issue. My tuner adjusted the vacuum a little bit and fixed it. That is why I asked if you had a vacuum leak.

I am not sure what all to as you to check tho.

Did the hot wire come off of the starter when you bottomed it out? Like the power wire
