Arrow -----update-----

after multiple attempts i finally just re-ran a new vacuum line to the throttle body, i took the bellows off the air box and the throttle body and used some berrymans chemdip throttle body cleaner. wiped the throttlebody clean as it would go and went for a test drive. everything went smooth until that dreaded curve on my road...i went through it making a left turn with no problems what so ever, coming back made me take a right and thats when it died. can anyone explain to me WHY it only kills out on right hand turns? its driving me bonkers.

Have you tried cranking it up and turning the steering wheel while parked?

Problem is not with your engine or anything in your engine compartment, your fuel pickup is cracked in your fuel tank, or a baffle is missing.
You make a right hand turn, all the gas sloshes to the opposite side of the tank and your fuel pump pulls air.

Happens to me taking a left hand turn. some day ill gt around to replacing and upgrading the whole setup.

Mine does this same thing when making left hand turns when I have a 1/4 or less tank of gas. I'll end up fixing it when I swap in my poly tank.
