87 260E choking


I just revived an 87 260E from storage in the garage. I would drive it for 20 minutes and would suddenly choke. It would act as if it wanted to die. It would only be for a second then it's smooth again. It happens when in stop and go traffic going to work.
It has not been driven much before now... 52K mi. original miles. What could be the culprit?

I'm thinking I should do a major tune-up.
cap, rotors, wires, oil change, fuel filter, air filter, coolant, etc...

You help would really be appreciated...

4/3 bump (F/R)

'97 993 Carrera

Always driven like it's stolen
