i would guess you're seeing an overboost issue. TD05 is a stage 3 turbo, but you didn't mention the car having the stage 3 PCM. Which would lead me to believe it probably doesn't have 3 bar map and tip sensors. The OEM sensors are 2.25 bar, which max out at 18psi. If this is the case, the PCM cant see how much boost you're running, and therefore cannot compensate with fuel. 13-14 AFR (AT WOT) is way too lean.

i am unsure if it has a stage 3 pcm how can i find out if it does and i legitimately purchased the car the way it is so to be sure i am just going to go ahead and get 3 bar and tip sensor do you think i would get by with hooking up a boost controller and lowering it to 18psi

post some pictures of your engine bay. specifically around the turbo/wastegate and the intake manifold.

if you wanted to turn the boost down, the AGP wastegate is your boost controller.

dont rush off to buy parts just yet until we've identified what you're starting with. until then, try to stay off full throttle.

Sounds like your running out of fuel. car falling on its face and all and 14 a/f. Be careful running out of fuel like that. that’s how things break.
