Have you got a fuel pressure gauge on the rail and what ECU are you using?

Had the same issue with my van. Ended up using a small swirl pot and facet lift pump to feed it with HP pump feeding from the pot.

i have ordered low pressure pump and swirl pot so hoping this will sort it boot is filling up with pumps and tanks
i had a chipped ECU on old engine and have plugged it in last night and car seemed to run ok on it.
I had fitted it before but would not run it but we later found out it was an after market fuel pressure regulator and faulty o2 sensor so they are sorted and ECU back in its a P28 or P30
i think i have car out in galway this Sunday coming so ill know if im sorted
i would like to be near right for wales
Cheers for all help its better getting advice from men and women who have built these cars
