\"Stall\" with my ATX?

alright lately some weird stuff has been happening to my car...i drive my car hard, always have always will...and i have noticed lately when i hit turns hard (left or right) and punch the gas my engine literally STALLS, RPMcut out and drop until i let off then roll a little and they kick in again...WHATS WRONG? it sometimes happens on straightaways too so it may not be because of turns but mostly its on turns even tho i get all ****-eyed thinkin "why on turns, whats going on?"
HELP ME OUT PLEASE!!!

yep... it's a dead fuel pump...

this is usually caused by the craptastic fuel filters this car uses... filter clogs, pump over-works, pump dies

droping the tank is not to easy. if you have some friends it should not be to hard. me personaly if i was in your position i would find some one else ball and leg and just pay up! ie have them do it
