Does the RPM drop?
Misfire?

I'd be looking for a bad earth, based on the very limited information you've supplied.

Could also be the fuel supply return hose in the tank - they can snap off or get damaged when the pump is renewed....will be more of a problem when on less than half a tank of fuel. What happens is the return hose supplies fuel to the swirl pot and when you turn a corner the fuel sloshes out of the swirl pot if the tank is less than 1/2 full......if above 1/2 the swirl pot is submerged. (pump sits in swirl pot)

As my previous post states, the problem probably lies with the fuel return pipe inside the tank being busted or missing....this is a common problem. If the swirl pot is also damaged the problem will occur. Also could be something in the tank blocking the pickup filter or blocking the fuel return hose. Your symptoms are classic for this problem (but that ain't no guarantee). All you need to do is read up on this forum on how to remove the fuel pump - then inspect it - if it all looks OK then fair enough. Costs nothing to look.
