How long is your fuel tubing from the pipe to the gas tank. If its really short this could be causing too much pressure....or pulsing.

Could be a clogged fuel filter from the tank towards the engine....causing build up of pressure.

But you would notice the car running real lean....needed the needle probably turned real rich.

Sometimes its the tank. I hate it, but just about everyone I know has swapped out basically good tanks just to check if it was the problem. Do this last resort.

Yeah not only that with sometimes too short of a line the pulsing also makes the fuel foam. You can always try revving the car in front of you and seeing if this is causing the top to loose a little gas.

Watch for any of these signs. I normally try to make the fuel line the same on both sides and give a good amount of room.

A good example of fuel tubing length and use is haras R40.

Just about everything on his car is there. As well as some nice chassis shots. Im going to be mimicking his car as much as possible.

Either that or will be buying the 2004 edition kit soon.
