Adjusting the air/fuel on a holley.

If your running a single carb and screw the air/fuel mixture screw all the way in the car will start to die, right? Well if your running dual carb's will the engine still die? I'm having a hard time getting these dual carbs tuned correctly.

I once had a tunnel ram setup on a SBC with two Holley 600cfm, 4-corner idle carbs. If I turned one idle mixture screw in, the car would stutter and want to die. It was a little difficult as I had a total of 8 idle mixture screws.
