Re: can anone settle the argument?
I'd still check the pump etc, but keep in mind that with an injected car, the injection system relies upon there being constant high pressure in the fuel system.
When cornering on a low fuel level, the fuel will surge one way and another, and there can be air pumped through the system, causing misfire/fuel shortage etc.
A carbied engine has the fuel in the float bowls to use if the fuel pump pushes the odd bit of air through, so you don't get the same problem cutting out in a carbed car.
I have talked to come of the guys racing 16v cars on injection, and fuel surge when cornering on low fuel levels is apparently a known "feature".
That said you might still have a bad pump or a rusty tank... Methodical checking is the way.
Best of luck.
