pretty cool (no pun) result with the meth and intake temps. Sounds nice and strong.

Tried to drive the car today and it doesn't maintain fuel pressure as soon as I put my foot down.
Dammit... it never ends.

So need to pull the pump out and have a look. I have a feeling the POR15 might be breaking down and blocking the pump sock - the old one was a bit black in colour.
I'll also replace the main filter just to be safe.

I actually had this problem on the dyno day when I was driving home into my street, but I thought it was a vacuum lock in the tank causing it because the cap wasn't breathing.
Obviously not that.

POR 15 in the tank?

Yep... I contacted them about it before hand and they said it was essentially the same as the tank sealer, so should be fine.
Not sure I agree now.

I only put it in the bottom where the coating was burned from the tank when I cut the hole for the pump, so should be easy enough to clean out if that's what it is.

The tank cream comes with a cleaner/prep you put in there first.

I now use KBS Coatings. Local guy and good to deal with.

Yes, I had the cleaner and the "metal ready" as well. I've done a few tanks with POR-15 kits.
I don't know that this is the problem yet, but I hope it is. It's the simplest explanation.

Maybe the issue is that you only coated part of the tank?

That would leave an edge that could lift.

Yep, that was also a concern.
In hindsight, I should have cut the hole with a grinder instead of a plasma cutter.

Ok to do with the plasma, but finish the edge by using snips. That is my method.

Yep its like cutting roofing iron if you cut it with snips it rolls the coating over the cut edge to some degree, and there is no burning.

Yeah that was my problem. The plasma burnt the coating on the bottom of the tank and I could imagine it rusting.
Shouldn't have worried about it in hindsight.. new tanks aren't that expensive.

If a later one came up at the right price I might change over anyway, but problem is I cut out one side of mine to make more room for my exhaust, so it's not a trivial job even without taking into account the hole for the pump.

Sock looked OK. I cleaned some crap from the tank, but it really wasn't bad.
Fuel filter seemed OK, but I will replace it anyway.

Also going to check voltage at the fuel pump tonight. If all that checks out, the regulator will be next.
