What is your fuel pressure set at? Where are your floats set at? Do you have fuel coming out of the boosters while idling? What are the idle mixture screw set at? What is your initial timing? Need to know more about setup before we can help. Lots of things can cause that to happen.

Does your carb have a power valve?

IMHO, I think your mixture screws are too far out. They should be between 1-1 1/2 turns. How much transfer slot is showing on your combo? Do you know what air bleeds you have in it? Idle feed restrictions?

How does it respond when you change the mixture screws? You might have a pv issue. Pull it out, and try to blow through the flat part. If you can blow through it, it's bad. Gonna taste like crap though...... :shock:
