we need all the info we can get about your car. modifications, any problems, anything you can think of as being abnormal? there's no way we can help you with no information, which is what you gave us.

At this point it could be anything? More info will yield you better answers my friend. Have you looked in the engine bay is anything looking abnormal? Are wiring looms all messed up? have you looked by the steering column to check for wires that may be exposed or shorting out under side-g's?

i found that if i auto-x with anything less than 1/2 a tank i got fuel starvation. hence the reason i always ran with a full tank.

+1234567890 My old swapped GC used to get fuel cut under hard turning, this happened to me a lot when I used to have an after market fuel pump, I replaced it with a stock fuel pump, problem went away...however it is kind of hard to diagnose or provide some insight if we don't know what your mods have.

ive expierenced this aswell... espcially after the swap and more power... has to be the low fuel issue.

Check the connections of your battery terminals. Could be that your battery is sliding and the wires are coming undone from the terminals

I had an issue similar to this after I replaced my blown motor. I had one ground on top of the engine not tightened causing the engine to cut out. I tightened the bolt and have been running perfectly ever since

+11 on the fuel starvation. I have experienced this at an Auto-X event as well. Very common with our cars.

lol, yeah I was about to discredit this thread... mine does it turning left as well, nascar style!

so, is there a solution to the fuel starve issue? I'm getting to the point where every little bit of weight savings gets me a little closer to those pescky STS civics that we hate so much. It'd be great to run an 1/8th of a tank of 110 octane without the fear of stalling in the sweepers..
