    Just had it dyno tuned was running great and now..... Just coming into power band boost starts to increase then it starts holding back. I see fuel pressure fall off completly. If I stay in the throttle it backfires it surges badly.
    what gives internal pump maybe T-rex filter Hmmm

    Any drop in fuel pressure would typically indicate a problem with either the pumps or the filter. Either pumps would be adequate for your power levels by themselves…..so I would first look into replacing the fuel filter.

    What is your base pressure set at? What fuel pressure regulator are you running?
