Default Turbo Headaches

I have a 92 Accord turboed running at 8psi (untuned). The car seems to sputter and die out eventually when reaching higher rpms. The check engine light will also come on. Also, when I gun it, the engine seems to not have any acceleration at all around 4 grand but kicks in again if I let off the gas a litle. There are a few things I am doing to the car in the near future that may help the problem, but I am just looking for suggestions right now.

I am still running on stock injectors. I bought 400cc injectors and an AEM fuel rail. I was thinking this may fix the problem. I also have an MSD system set up with BOSCH 4 prong plugs and duralast 8mm wires (the wires are just a quick fix, i am getting MSD wires soon) Also, when I purchased the car, the fuel MAP sensor was unplugged. When I first bought it, I plugged it in not thinking and had my spark wires go up in flames. I think that covers everything. Please let me know if any of these will fix the problem or if there is anything I'm missing. I hope to get the turbo running up to 13 - 15psi after tuning (and all fuel upgrades). Thank you so much for the help!! It's greatly appreciated!!

**I will have pics up very soon**
