I know I dont have any vacuum leaks and even went as far as unplugging all vacuum lines to the carb and then plugging the ports to see if the vaccum would increase and it didnt.. I also sprayed around the carb and intake.. My Vacuum reading is 8hg at idle with a cam profile that has 260 degreees @ .050.. I farted around with it again last night and managed to get a good idle at 1000 rpm but it still seems to slam hard when I put it in Drive. I turned the vacuum module screw 1 full revolution but it didnt change anything.. By the way, I have a Might Demon carb..
