Default 04 350z will only idle. Dies when try and rev

I need some help from Nissan guru.. I bought my 04 350z roadster as a total. It hit a guard rail doing 70mph. It needed rt ft suspension, frame work on the rt ft, rt rear suspension, pass air bags and seat belt, thats about it. I got it all together and now it won't run. It will start and idle fine. It seams fine for 5 min or so, will drive and rev fine. Then after it starts to warm up after 5 min or so it will only Idle. If I touch the throttle it dies or cuts out will not rev.What could be wrong. Did no work to the engine, Had the radiator and stuff out but nothing else.. Please Help No nissan dealer for 2 hours away.

Try doing all the ecu reset procedures first. There are a few le-learns that your car may need to go through. Do you have a scanner/code reader? Does the car have any codes? You should keep trying from a cold start until all the rediness monitors come on, then it can throw a cel, if it needs to. Were there any wire harness issues from the wreck? It doesn't sound like it was too bad but you never know. Don't get bummed if it doesn't work, these resets are tricky to do. Try it a couple times with a friend.
