That's pretty fast, brother!! pirat
If the pump has a ton of use on it, it may be showing its age. Do you have an A/F meter on board??...does it literally go lean on de-celleration?? or do the plugs look good??
I imagine that a car that fast, the pump must also overcome the inertia that is trying make the fuel go in the opposite direction.
You will certainly want to keep your eye on it, maybe even play with the pressure setting a little and do test hits.
It don't sound like you have a volume issue, just a little pressure fluctuation.
