Default Fuel Starvation!!!

Just recently finished Superformance #988, and have discovered that under hard acceleration (very rarely encountered!) all the gas will slosh to the back of the wedge-shaped tank, starving the motor (and risking burning pistons).
I don't have the fuel cel, and am running multiport fuel injection, which may amplify the problem. This happens if the tank is less than 3/4's full. Needless to say, I could keep refilling every 45 miles......

Anyone else have this problem? Anyone know of any solutions? Will the fuel cel stop slosh? Or do I need to have the tank modified with baffles, trap doors, etc?
