Since you mentioned it only does this in a 1/4 situation my first thought would be valve float due to over reving.

What are the RPM's at the stripe in the 1/4 vs the 1/8?

Also do you have jet extensions on the secondaries?

How much timing total timing are you running?

What type distributor / ignition?

A stock hei will play out at higher rpms.

I'd stick some secondary jet extensions in there first, it just might be the problem.

Under hard acceleration fuel wants to climb up the back of the fuel bowl. Jet extensions will help ensure that the secondary jets stay in fuel at all times, also make sure the float level is right at the bottom of the site plug, if you take out plug no fuel should come out but if you wiggle the car a tad, fuel should spill out easily.

I assume your using a single plane intake, what brand?

You may be at the max operating range of the cam and or intake.

Just a thought.

No matter what route you go> definetly put the extensions in, $5 bucks anywhere is cheap insurance for that ailment.

IMO< I would move UP to a better higher flowing intake.
A Victor jr or a Team G would be much better choices.

I'm not a cam guy guru by any stretch of the imagination but your cam seems small to me, I'm thinking something in the 610's to 630 lift would be much better suited to your combo.

I AM BY NO MEANS A TRANS GUY BUT, I WOULD TRY A TURBO 350,I TALKED TO A TECH AT ATI TRANSMISSION ABOUT A GLIDE AND HE TOLD ME I WAS NOT MAKING ENOUGH HP TO USE A GLIDE AND IT MIGHT HURT MY 1/4 MILE TIME AND MY CAR RUNS 10.30'S IN THE 1/4 WITH A TURBO 350
JUST MY 2 CENTS WORTH

What is happening is you are running out of camshaft. Here are the specs on that cam.

Operating Range: 2500-6500 RPM
Duration Advertised: 280° Intake / 286° Exhaust
Duration @ .050'' Lift: 242° Intake / 248° Exhaust
Valve Lift w/1.5 Rockers: .570'' Intake / .576'' Exhaust
Valve Setting: .016'' Intake / .018'' Exhaust
Lobe Separation Angle: 110°

With the small duration and 110° LSA and a 4.56gear w/28" tall tire a 383 has it's tongue hanging out by a 1000'. My motor does the same thing because my cam only has 248°/252° duration, 383, 4.88 w/33" tire. JMO.
