You'd need a check valve system that closes the Y on either side if/when it starves. This entire assembly would be flopping around inside the tank; it's a VERY tight space to work in.

It takes very little skill to go WOT in a straight line, especially in a car like a 15+ wrx that has very tall gears.

If you pulled on a stage 2 WRX on 91, that WRX must have a very poor tune!

The R888R should be faster in basically any scenario on track, except in soaked track or more wet. A look at data should show why you're not going faster on the R888R.
