On mine if I turn the low boost pump on at idle or taxiing I have to immediately lean the mixture or it nearly snuffs out with too much fuel (Rich)
so you have a fuel supply problem

Check for easy stuff first
1)Left front fuel strainer
2)take off a fuel cap then run it to check your fuel breathers
3)Change sides with fuel tap to ensure both sides are the same
then from there you are into checking your mechanical pump

let us all know what you find happy hunting

you both need the fuel injection system to be set up correctly.

this requires a set of accurate pressure gauges, and a knowledgeable mechanic. NOT a job for a novice.

Have to agree with the above most guys are just fiddling to get full fuel flow on climb to keep them cool

There are many adjustments on the pressure and adanoid valve area that can be screwed up
