      If it only does it on right hand turns it's probably the secondary pump. How much gas is in the tank? If it's less than a half I'd look at that pump.

          I had this happen once when I was low on fuel, it just cut out while I was hard on the gas in a turn. It cleared up and didn't die though as I left it in gear, it hasn't happened since then (which was around 2 years ago).

            I had this happen on a RX7TT, had a bare spot in the fuel pump relay wiring that would only touch bare metal when cornering in one direction, drove me nuts for months before I finally lucked into figuring it out

            you just never know, best wishes for a speedy fix

              happened to me too after a hard left turn - the metal elbow near the front of the intake plenum was loose and lateral G's pulled it right out for me.
              I popped it back in, started back up and went to go buy some silicone sealant... Good luck =)

                Check for a frayed fuel pump ground wire too under the rear seat
