Hello, I am having summertime sputter problems with my cat 3406e. when the outside temp is 80 degs it runs great but as the outside temp rises it sputters bad in the pulls. seems ok in the flat land but i dont have my foot into it.. the fuel tank at this point is extremely hot. I have to put on gloves at this point so I dont get burned. It is that hot. Any clue on this? I know that it cant be vapor lock because of the fuel high pressure. I took this cat from 425 hp to 500hp then to 550hp(love it) can this have anything to do with this problem. It is a 95 cat 3406E.. thxs
