The readings you got are almost perfect!

Stalling on CIS-E cars is usually caused by an incorrect sensor imput to the CIS computer & then the computer cuts the power to the idle control valve, then the engine stalls.
Finding that bad sensor is the trick. The sensors that can cause that problem are air-flow position sensor, throttle valve switch, & decel switch. Also the hall-effect speed sensor on the speedo(cruise) can cause stalling problems as well.
