Default weird issue after e fuel install

So last weekend I finished my e fuel install, sd bowl, sd lines, hpop resovoir, etc.. with a riff raff frx. On the initial test drive, the truck would run good, until you got into it hard. It would start "skipping" or missing. I mean BAD, bad enough it chirps the tires when this happens. It would do it in any gear. My initial thought was air in the fuel system, and me never working on a manual transmission truck, made me think air in the system even more. Fast forward to a week later, truck still doing the same thing. I noticed if I take it easy in first, and second for a bit, it will not skip if I get into the throttle hard, but will do it again if i let the truck sit for a few hours. I've probably put 100 miles on the truck since the install, so the air in the fuel idea isn't looking promising anymore. Any insight? Is this normal for a manual trans truck to do with air in the fuel system? I've worked on hundreds of powerstrokes, but this is the only manua, and the only issue like this I've dealt with.

It is set up EXACTLY like a sd, with a riff raff frx, so yes one line per head feed, one line per head return. I'm uploading videos now. No I have not verified the fuel pressure, but it wouldn't make sense to me that pressure would be low, and then somehow ruse up after a few miles. Stranger things have happened though. Videos are uploading now, and will post once uploaded.

Truck had a cps code, I suppose that could cause the issue. Although I find it strange it would happen at the exact same I swapped to e fuel. If/ when I ever get a day off, ill swap it and report back

check the air intake for cracks, I have seen boots on an intake cracked almost half way around but in the bottom of the pleat so you didn't notice it, then when you stand on it, it bucks and jerks hard to figure out if you haven't seen it before. Or fuel system with a leak, sucking air?
