hotrod papa
I have a 1994 S10 with a 1975 400 sbc in it. it will start and idle fine but when I put it in gear it will fall on it's face and die unless I keep it running by giving it throttle. I'm running the mothathumper cam by comp a 750 holly 3310 carb stock heads that have been shaved 20 thousand, performer intake,and a msd desibator also a3800 stall. please give me some advise on whats wrong.
