hey guys ive got an el xr6 with a ba turbo motor in it and everytime i put the aircon on, the car almost stalls when i come to a stop at lights....the revs drop really low then the car shutters then the revs pick up again and repeats that the whole time im stationary :/

what would cause this?

You will need to trigger the aircon input on the BA ECU to tell it to raise the idle a bit when the aircon is on. That's if it hasnt been done already.

Take it to back to the tuner to fix.

I dont know how you will go because E series and BA aircon systems are different.

My AU2 is having this problem at the moment. The wolf was setup on an AU1 but mine is a little different so they are having all kinds of grief running the a/c with the wolf.

The aircon is cycling well but it stalls coming to a stop with it on as well.

slap in a solenoid like the old nissans and toyota's did.

pinch 12v from the clutch and make a bracket for the solenoid to bump up the throttle.

I guess thats a butchers way, but hell you've a BA in a E-series.
