Sounds like fuel starvation, make a test line from the line after the inline filter, and drop into the fuel tank opening, or a fuel container and run test. If it runs ok, problem is upstream, at filter, hoses or the tank. From what I remember about the LS series, the inline fuel filter can restrict fuel ad was eliminated .???
