Engine is running fine at idle and boost. Will log AFR now.
One strange thing I noticed today was that when accelerating in a turn, left or right, it seems like engine is loosing ignition or fuel, and stuttering and ends with a bang in the exhaust.
When accelerating straightforward all is well
That's weird. Got an almost empty gas tank...gas sloshing away from the intake and sucking air? (long shot, I know, but stranger things have happened).

Or, a bad electrical connection either fuel or ignition related...some wire somewhere moving in response to sideways engine/body torque. Try tugging on every wire you can get your hands on with the car idling in the driveway.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
