Figured Out Where My Fuel Went Last Year.....IDM Fault

Well last year in Baytown I was fighting an issue with the fuel disappearing about mid track. My MPH on the big end dropped from 100 on fuel only to 96 and datalogging you could see it drop out because the high pressure oil pressure would spike. I couldn't find rhyme or reason when or why this was happening. So what changed? My IDM. I went to a modded IDM and I think my core that I started with was toast to begin with. I put on my stock 110 and now I have plenty of fuel (had to add a bit of timing back in for the lower voltage) but my fuel doesn't cut out anymore. Anybody want to run this possibly failed unit through some testing to see if they can prove what it was doing?

Now have a s366 from Swamps now.
