When I make sharp turns and press accelerator, car seems like its starving for fuel and starts bucking wildly. RPMs drop significantly but then they pick up again.
The best way to describe it is hesitation ... Pressing the gas just makes things worse around turns. Nearly stalls the car. Running an Avenir W11 on a JWT ECU in a 96 SE-R. New fuel pump (340LPH), new plugs and new fuel filter.

Car pulls strong in a straight line and no issues with full tank. It's only when the tank is less than half that these issues start happening. Anyone have ideas?

I cannot find the thread where this was diagnosed, but...often the fuel pickup line will come off of the fuel pump (especially when installing an aftermarket fuel pump) and will cause issues as you describe. I suggest pulling the fuel pump cover and seeing if you find this hose floating around. It happened on my old 1992 SER turbo project and plagued me for some time.
