Making sure the Holley is adjusted is the key. There are lots of various adjustments that have to be correct and I would get a Holley Carb book or just go to their website and see what you should do. Sounds like a fuel delivery problem which could be in the float setting , the throttle pump(the small arm under the carb on the front) which needs to be set at between .015-.020.........get the book, it will help.
