Default Predator engine cuts off in hard turns.

Just bought a new predator 212engine. Every time you put it in a hard turn it dies. What do I do to fix this thing? It's crazy fast compared to the old 5 horse briggs that was on it. Im guessing its the low oil cut off. How do I bypass it? Thanks guys for any help. Love reading your info

yep low oil. there should be a yellow cover coming out of the block in the front and into a black circle type of thing, unclip it and there will be the wires, take the yellow one from the block, follow it up and at some point it should unplug, now just put that peice back on and go.
Great, now rebuild the engine.

Not trying to be a pain, but can people please use the search function? I must have seen this question being answered over half a dozen times!
