A new problem, this one really bad. Buick 215, Edelbrock carb, RV8 headers,
Holley Electric pump, etc. The car idles fine, and will drive around my

long as I drive very slowly. To me it is acting like it is running out of
fuel at speed, does this make sense?

especially with the Firestone Firehawk tires. A great purchase for 520
including shipping. The wheels were 14x6, with a 38 mm offset. I used the

weekend. So far, I haven't come through. But on a positive note, she
actually watched me time the engine and asked intelligent questions. Maybe
I'll have to keep this one :-)
Thanks for the help,
