Bingo


An AP wouldn't have anything helpful to diagnose fuel starvation that I can think of.

A wideband o2 gauge might help and is a pretty good gauge to have if you track your car but again, but like eggroll said, it happens pretty dramatically... which is good because you don't spend much time in a lean condition which would be very bad at WOT.

I would suggest keeping more fuel in the tank for track days and see if you avoid this issue that way.
