1990 Ford Mustang V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual

My car will start just fine and idle good for about 1 minute. It then starts to idle down and have trouble running and will die. If I constantly pump the brakes the car will idle just fine. I know it is a vacuum problem, but not sure where to look. Please help!

Clean out the idle air control valve and test the coolant temperature, throttle position and mass airflow sensor and also look vacuum leaks

Thanks for the feedback. The IAC and TPS are brand new. Engine coolant temp is right where it should be, so I guess that this just leaves the MAF and vacuum leaks. Does it make sense that the issue is on the brake booster?
