TOPIC: Loss of power in Right hand turns

Loss of power in Right hand turns 6 years, 8 months ago #19076

First day at the track with a new build car.
Car is hard to start when cold, but starts fine when it has been warmed up. Idle is a little inconsistent. On the track it will lose all power coming out of a sharp right hand turn and partial power in a sweeping right hand turn. It is fine in the straights and in and after left hand turns.
I have replaced both Hall effect sensors, the TPS and the DME with no change.
Does anyone have any ideas? Any help is much appreciated.

Likely it's fuel starvation due to a cracked strainer in the fuel tank outlet.

Drain the tank and you can unscrew the strainer and examine/replace it.

Good luck!

I will check, but tank was cleaned, strainer, filter, lines and pump were replaced during the build. Car had at least 5 gallons of fuel in the tank, so uncovering the intake seems unlikely.

Check the plastic part of your ignition switch. Mine did the same thing, cutting out in right hand hard turns. When I went to unplug the switch, the plastic part came out in two pieces.

I have replaced the ignition switch with a switch panel, replaced the engine wiring harness and also the fuel pump. No luck. The car is still cutting out in right hand turns.
I'm running out of ideas. Help!
