Well I added the pressure regulator after seeing the fuel filter empty intermittently so I figured if I added the regulator it would create a steady stream of fuel. That hasn't happened so it must be not receiving a steady amount.

I have replaced the fuel pump with a second electric one I had sitting around. Both of the pumps I have tried however are probably at least 8-10 years old now and are just these el cheapo jobs.

It may be that these simply can't flow enough fuel to keep up.

I think I will also check for a voltage drop and see if the circuit the pump is wired into isn't causing some sort of drop in flow rate.
