also, the 9 cm^2 housing comes out to roughly .79 compared to a garrett t3 backhousing

I think its a trigger pickup issue, some sort of protection set in MS, or (like dirtyrick was saying) you've got some fuel system issues.
Using stock plumbing may be an issue as the higher flow volume needed for corn may be holding it back. This is an important reason to check the pressure at the rail under load.

NOTE: I am still looking for a nice 90° adapter to connect to the rail, my rigged setup is prone to leak. I don't understand why they oriented that test fitting pointing down!!??
I did not notice if TLAO is still using the stock rail and regulator.
The tapered seat fitting at the inlet to the rail has a pretty small hole in it!

I used this banjo bolt in my fuel filter and a fuel pressure sensor of eBay.

Where did you come to this figure? I found other data that says it is closer to .54

I am using all new -8 plumbing from the tank to the inline 350il to the stock filter (necks down to -6 coming out of the stock filter, this is not a restriction as a friend is pushing 642whp on a stock volvo filter with -6 in and out of it) and then -8 to the rail/fpr. the rail is -6 threaded aftermarket unit nathan used to make with his manifolds. Not a stock fuel system part in the system besides the stock cover on the gas tank and the stock -5 return line going back to the tank.

I am working on getting a GoPro Mounted underhood so I can monitor the fuel pressure. I am running a DWR1000 FPR.

Either way I am relooking at my fuel system setup to see what I can tweak to see what is going on. Thanks for all of the advice and guidance. I will see what I can dig up.
