Are you now thinking the hesitation is a too-rich condition? I think you know a smaller shooter will extend the shot duration, but won't help a too-lean at the hit of the throttle accelerator pump condition.

Too rich of an accelerator pump shot can sometimes be confirmed by having someone follow your vehicle to watch the exhaust at the hit of the throttle. Black smoke = too rich.
