I don't agree Ben's whining, maybe challenging folks like you and me.
'Regular folks' should know Ben as well as they know you. After 10 years on this
list, I learned there are newbies and not-so-newbies. I put Ben in the
latter category easily. Which means, I make the assumption he has done the
'obvious', and that this EFI 10vt car is cavitating the fuel pump. As a rule, the
stock lines and pumps can handle ~350HP, then they really should be addressed
with some other mod. I suspect line diameter would do it, but the Walbro
alternative pumps could do the trick, and are pretty standard in the Japanese
cars (ala my supercharged 4.5L DOHC landcruiser).
On occasion, those outside the envelope are looking for deep solutions. I
find Ben's post challenging, not insulting. It appears he's added enough
power to the 10vt that deeper solutions might be necessary. I rarely post,
certainly not to the newbies, as I feel that's what 'search' is for in the
archives. When I see something new being asked regarding the 'old' 10vt
applications, I'm in quickly.
Huw, I would think the outcome of this might be good for your FAQ pages.
After visiting Ben's home garage, the thought of a 'newbie' question, seems
oxymoronic to me. I'd encourage you don't confuse his looking for higher level
thinking for anything but that.

You posted like a newb with a fp prob, but expected deep solutions.
Sorry if some regular folks tried to help...
