1965 ford mustang-engine dies when turning right?

I'm not afraid to admit, This one confuses me and I've been an auto tech over 11 years. My friend has a 1965 ford mustang with 289ci engine, nothing stock about it though, Edelbrock intake and carb, aftermarket exhaust, Elec ignition etc etc ,all that stuff- I havint been out to look at it yet but he says that when he turns right the engine stalls. Happens 9 times out of ten. ........ .... Vacuum?? ........Pinched fuel line?? ..... Yea I'll admit, I'm stumped.

Well my experience says to do this, wiggle the wiring harness to the dist. from the firewall and also install a ground wire to the motor from the frame AND battery, Also this may seem strange but check the oil level haven't seen it but have heard of this. Also what about the carburetor float setting, if set to low would cause it to run out of fuel while turning.

carburetor float may not be well adjusted,or it's not the right full pump or the fuel sender is faulty

Could be pick up tube in fuel tank, needle blowing off the seat in the carb (Should have no more than 5-5.5 psi fuel pressure), Float level too high in fuel bowl and it spills over when turning right, bad ign coil with an internal loose connection that gets jostled around at a right turn, etc.
