C36 Dying On Right Hand Turns

Wow. My 1995 C36 has been dying on right hand turns only. It will usually start right back up after this happens. I have had to leave the car by the side of the road for several hours before it would start again. Changed the fuel filter, checked the fuel pump and nothing seems to be wrong. My car only has 77k miles on it and I only run premium gas. There is no fuel pressure at the rail when this problem occurs and 55 lbs when the motor is running. It has been suggested to check the MAF. Any ideas? Thanks.

When this happened to me in my previous MB it ended up being my MAF. It also seemed to do it on right hand turns for some reason. It also did it when I came to a stop light and started to brake. I was able to start it right up without issue. Would be fine for a few days or weeks then it would happen again. After I replaced the MAF never happened again and the car is still running strong on the road today. A friend has it now. Car has 250k miles on it and still runs great. Keep up all the normal maintenance and those engines will last forever! Good luck with your car and finding out the problem. Keep us posted!
