[Gmecm] Two '747 problems

BLM's are between 125 and 130 all across the board.
The fuel pump is a new in-tank unit for a 1990 TPI. Fuel filter is new.
No vacuum leaks anywhere I can find. I even replaced the intake gasket
to be sure. IAC shows no sign of sticking. There is no EGR, and the EGR
routines are disabled by setting their thresholds at extremely high
temps and speeds. (EGR is set to open at 254 mph.)
I'll look into any and all suggestions. What I've received so far has
been helpful in that it helps me think of different possibilities.

Stop and then restart and it is fine?!?!? I am not familiar with the
747 tunning, do you have BLMs? what are they like before and after the
stop and restart?
Could it be a lazy or plugged fuel pump/filter?
Maybe the IAC is leaking.... or stuck?!?!
Heh, I don't know...
