ENGINE SHUTS OFF

1981 Nissan 280Z

Engine Performance problem
1981 Nissan 280Z 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 136000 miles

My 280zx seems to shut off when I turn right, only to the right though. But it only shuts off if I gas it a little bit while Im turning, like it wont shut off if I go slow. I cant figure out if its electrical or engine problem. I was driving it at night and when I turned and gased it, the engine sounded like it was " choking" and my lights shut off, but I immediately let go of the gas and it came back to life, so maybe its getting to much or little gas? But why only when I turn right? Please help. Thank you.
