    Fuel cut during WOT using MBC

    So recently my stock bcs stopped working and I replaced it with a hallman type mbc. I have a tuner that's been etunning my car and has been great to work with me. So I installed the mbc and slowly started to adjust the boost level to creep up to the target level which was around 17psi. After passing 13-14 psi I start to get fuel cut and the car lunges. The only time I've ever had the same issue is when I was overboosting due to a vac leak some time ago. Tried a new tune setup and still having issues. Wondering if I should continue working with the tuner or if I should be looking at hardware that could be the cause. I've read that the stock bpv sometimes has this issue but I switched mine out with a friends STi a while back when he was trading up so that shouldn't be the issue. No apparent air leaks and the only mod is k&n typhoon intake. Just hoping for some feedback before I continue to bug my tuner.

    It's hard to say with no data to go on. Some logs, or even a copy of your map should shed some light on what's happening.

    Computer wouldn't allow me to upload cvs files so I'll have to convert the file before I can share it. My tuner says it may be the fuel pump

    So I'm going to replace the fuel filter and possibly the lines that connect to it. I'm getting a strong gas smell around that area. There is also another filter like device that is on the line next to the fuel filter. Anyone know what this is?

    I took it off to see if it had blockage and it was hollow. Some kind of dampener I suppose. There also wasn't any pressure I that line.
