Engine Idles fine, dies if gas pedal pressed

HELP!!!! I have a 96 Altima w/ a weird problem. The engine starts up fine and runs at idle speed normally. As soon as I press the gas pedal, the engine completely DIES. I have tried everything I know to resolve this issue w/ no success:

Brand New Battery, Alternator tested at Discount Auto Parts charging perfectly, Replaced Spark Plug Wires, Cap & Rotor. Checked Spark plugs and cleaned (sanded contacts). Checked the Voltage on the MAF, all w/in correct range as per Haynes manual.

What else could it possibly be??? It is now Saturday at 3:15pm and I need my car for work by Monday morning!!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

When it dies are you lightly tapping the pedal or are you really stepping on it.

GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I fixed it!!!! I decided to open to the fuel line to confirm fuel coming out when ignition switched to ON - CONFIRMED
Then i remove the accordion hose from the manifold to the air filter housing - checked for cracks/holes etc - NONE. opened up butterfly flap on manifold, sprayed it up w/ intake carb/choke cleaner, started up, repeated. Started again, rev the engine up to 6000 RPM and back to idle we go! Reved up again and back at idle, engine doesn't die anymore.

The intake did feel rough w/ residue before spraying it up - can it really be that bad to cause the problem I experienced???? Well, apparently so in my case! Any thoughts?
