i believe the main problem is tank design. have you taken the tank down and looked at it? the thing is only 8" deep. it i very wide and very shallow. once the fuel level gets low enough there is just to much room for the fuel to move and it doesnt take a lot of movement to get the level down where it becomes a problem. that is why it isnt a problem at all to make the power on a dyno but once you get it on the street or a coarse and beat on it that is where the problem is.
