Sometimes cars stalls, then it'll crank but won't turn on

So just recently, my cars rpm would sometiems drop to 0 and then turn off. When it turns off, i turn it back on and it runs for 30 seconds, then same thing. then after that, i try turning it on...it'll crank, but won't turn on. the check engine light would blink 2-3 times. I REALLY need help with this. After a long while, it starts and runs perfectly fine. heres some info about my car:

-turbo + stage 3 cc clutch installed about a month ago... about 1500 kms
-1999, MT
