If your pump is original, replace it.

I want to avoid the rip and replace approach to solving the problem since fuel pumps arnet exactly cheap. I'll read the thread you suggested.

My rough start is a result of my ESS TS2. The problem started after the installation several years ago and I am just getting around to trying to trace it down. Professional vaccumm leak smoke test didnt turn up anything so now Im thinking it has to do with the fuel system.
