I've already dont the accelerator cam routine. Carb is running great except for the stumble when the throttle is cracked quickly.
As long as your fuel bowl levels are correctly set then you probably need to go with larger primary nozzles - 25's are tiny - probably only good for a very light car with a manual trans. Would also depend on how built your motor is and if manual/auto trans when sizing discharge nozzles to correct the off-idle stumble. On my 420HP-351W motor and C4 that's pushing a 3800# load down the road it needed 35 nozzles in the front. Tell us about your motor mods, trans and weight (including you in it, too).
