: also check the fuel filter and the in tank fuel pump

While we didn't change or check these (other than to note that the filter was so clean it looked new),

I doubt that a bad pump or clogged filter could have maintained the 43-45psi we noted at 5000+rpm.

As the volume demand of teh engine overwhelmed the systems ability to produce it, the pressure would have begun to drop off, which it didn't.
