Once in a while, when I get on it hard, it starts to act like it's running out of gas. I don't have a fule presure gauge to look at yet, but the fule filter IS new( 2mo old). It just seems like it's not geting as much fule suply as it needs, and then it acts like it's running out of gas for a while. I have disconected the hi boost fule cut out, so I don't think that's it.
Any one got any ideas, had this hapen with U?:eh:

Your fuel pump may be getting weak. A pressure test is in order. My car would start to studder when I needed extra power. A new pump fixed the problem.

I don't know what presure the sys. is suposto run at. And I didn't know if the fule pump would just crap out all together, or if presure would start to fall of 1st.

I think the fuel pressure for the FI models is up there around 35 to 50 PSI or something like that. For carbs it's around 3.5 PSI. That's why the FI models have bigger stronger fuel lines.
