It's also too coincidental the SVX came along around the time (1992) those designers had jumped ship. I'll see if I can get a picture of the ...

I would check that your pressure reg is not set to high..
This combined with the VL pump could be throwing to much fuel through the injectors and the computer is not able to adjust them down far enough.

Also check temp rating of your sparkplugs. They could be too cold.
